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.

Ranch almond blossoms

The almond trees at the ranch are still blooming this weekend, although they aren't as beautiful as a week ago.  The owners have 5 almond trees.  Two have white blossoms and the other three have pink.  Unfortunately, one of the white ones died this past year and, with California's drought, ALL the other ones are struggling.  They just don't have many blooms.  That's how it is this year.  So, I was fortunate to see these last weekend and take photos.  This weekend, I'd say 90% of the blossoms are already gone.
