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.

Pines and shadows~Shadow Shot Sunday~070713
Hubby and I took a 4 night trip to Idyllwild, which is up in our local San Jacinto mountains, last weekend. I took this photo the afternoon we arrived (Sunday) because I liked the way the tree limbs were shading the pines. It was just so nice up there! It was 20-25 degrees cooler than the desert, although Saturday it was 101 degrees, even up at 6,000 feet in the mountains! PHEW! By Sunday, it was down to 99 degrees, then the mid-80's for the rest of the week. We even had some sprinkles Sunday night. We enjoyed our break from the desert heat, but now we are home for a long stretch...sigh...Shadow Shot Sunday for July 7, 2013. To visit SSS, please go to: http://shadowshotsunday2.blogspot.com/
