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.

Water, water EVERYWHERE! Water World Wednesday~030514

After our storms here Friday and Friday night, I drove up to the Whitewater Preserve.  This is in Whitewater Canyon.  The San Bernardino mountains are behind it and they were covered with snow. The river was flowing so quickly that the road to the preserve was CLOSED.  Nobody was going over it~not with that much water flowing!  I was able to walk up and take these photos, however.  By Sunday morning, the water had stopped flowing and a bulldozer had been up there, cleaning up the road, and the road was open.  All of this water flows into the aquifer that serves the Coachella Valley and believe me, we NEED this water!  Water World Wednesday for March 5, 2014.  To visit Water World Wednesday, please go to:
