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.

Cows, fire, and fence~Friday's Fences~071913
I took this photo of the Mountain fire on Tuesday and by Thursday the road was closed. The cows weren't too concerned about the fire, which burned away from them and is now heading down into Palm Canyon and Andreas Canyon (the Palm Springs Indian canyons). We will all watch the weather today because a monsoon is moving toward the valley and our mountains and that means wind shifts. This fire is now over 22,000 and is the priority of the US Forest Service. The entire towns of Idyllwild and Fern Valley have been evacuated and are ghost towns. Friday's Fences for July 19, 2013.
