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.

Fall colors~no snow~


I took these photos yesterday up at the Whitewater Preserve, which is up a canyon in our local San Bernardino mountains.  It was a warm day and I quickly took my sweater off and discarded it!  We went on a family outing and took the grandson and his family along.  The little guy (he's 4...) ran around, examined every leaf there, looked at the fish in the holding ponds (it is also a fish hatchery) and announced, "Where's OUR cabin?"  Huh?  No cabins there.  He was remembering one of the trips up to Idyllwild!  Clever boy! :-)
