Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

"F" is for feathers...ABC Wednesday 022013



I've started up my daily walks again.  However, I now usually walk in the afternoon, after school, since my school startup time changed this year and now they start 30 minutes earlier.  However, on weekends I still walk in the morning.  I love the morning light and on this day, I was surprised to find two vultures sunning themselves in a mesquite tree.  They had their FEATHERS out, soaking up the sun's warmth, as you can see.  Then, as I approached, they both warily eyed me and finally took off, FLYING right above me!  Look at this vulture's feathers...aren't they beautiful?  ABC Wednesday for FEBRUARY 20, 2013.  To visit ABC Wednesday, please go to:   http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/
