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.

More flower pics and some birds that come to visit them...
We have finches, sparrows, hummingbirds, and even a family of grosbeaks (and many doves) come visit the bird feeders and flowers in the back yard. I haven't seen the grosbeaks for a few days, so I don't know if they are still in our area, or whether they have moved on to their summer habitat. Several hummingbirds come visit the feeders. I actually have two feeders. This morning, finches were feeding at them. I need to go clean them out and put new solution, so I'll do that. Oh, and you can see how tall the sunflowers were. That's a 6' fence out back, along the dog run.
