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.

Ducks at the park

Our civic center park is still one of my favorite places to go on Saturday mornings, so off I went last week.  There are now so many mud hens and ducks that there's a new city ordinance:  You can ONLY feed them duck food which is provided through dispensers in the park.  For a quarter, you get a VERY measly portion of duck food.  Ugh.  That's really NO FUN, especially for anxious 4 year olds like my grandson!  DRATS!  I don't feed them anyway, but I do grab my camera to get photos of them.  Aren't they adorable?

Horse day

I had a good day with the horses today (Sunday)...the ranch owner sent me an email that the shoer was there and asked if I was coming up to help hold each horse.  She said he would be there a couple of horse, so off I went at 9:00 a.m.  He only did 3 of mine:  Quad, Sunni, and Lucille.  Lucille needed new shoes.  Scout and Gigondas can wait until his next visit.  It was a beautiful, crisp, clear day and it was so nice to get outdoors.  I'm going to return tomorrow for the horses' lesson with my trainer.
