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.

Oak Glen

So the son & his family piled into the XTerra Sunday (I was stuffed into the front seat) and off we went to Oak Glen so the grandson, who is 4, could see the apples at one of the big apple ranches there.  It is way past apple time and it was fairly deserted.  But, we did see snow on the ground and the top of their roof was covered with frost.  They also had a smoker outside and they were smoking tri-tip roasts.  They all got to sample apple cider and our son bought a gallon jug of it to take home.  The grandson got to run around and climb over some rocks in their kid-friendly play area.  It was good to get outdoors.  I had been cooped up in the house for 8 days...back to work today, however!
