Looking west to the gold fields of Lost Basin just after sunrise. The Joshua`s glow in the morning sun. Most prospecting and gold producing was done during the depression era into the 1940`s. The majority of today`s prospectors use metal detectors


Brilliant red skies just before complete sunrise.  Looking towards Diamond Bar Road. The Skywalk is about a  20 + mile drive via Diamond Bar.

The Grand Wash Cliffs peek through the Joshua trees in the distance.

It`s almost Fall. Nice and cool. In the yard today were a few dozen cottontails, jackrabbits and fuzzy new quail hatches. Beautiful way to start my day.

Thank you for visiting. Our deserts have lots to offer. Solitude, fresh air, peace and beauty. I hope you enjoyed the pictures.



  1. Gorgeous. I love the desert. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pics.

  2. I always enjoy seeing the desert through your eyes. We have traveled through your area several times, but on the interstate. So different to see it through your camera lens.

  3. Thank you Gwynette. It will be Fall soon. Yipee!

  4. I'm looking forward to fall, too. I'll clean out my perennial beds and call it a year


I appreciate your comments, so don`t be shy.
