Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

HOME and back to work!

Well, hubby and I are home from our weekend trip to the Sierras. We rented a cabin at the Silver Lake resort near Silver Lake (in the June lake loop) for two nights. Unfortunately, the first night, Saturday, people near the fire pit had a huge fire and LOTS of beer. I didn't get to sleep until 2:30 a.m.!!! Sunday night, however, they had all left and it was raining anyway, so all was quiet. We spent Friday night in Ridgecrest, to knock off 3 hours' driving time and then Saturday we drove up behind Bishop to view the aspen. And, we hit them just at the right time! They were GORGEOUS! Some were yellow, some orange, and there were a few red ones! My eyes were simply overwhelmed! The Sierras were alive with color! We could see groves of aspen from the freeway, covering the mountains, climbing up gorges, and in meadow patches. It was quite an experience! It was cloudy and drizzly yesterday (Monday) all the way home from June Lake to the desert. The White Mountains turned white overnight. We couldn't see how much snow (if any) fell on the Sierras, since they were cloaked by clouds.

Further north the colors are done but we can look south of us and still see some pretty colors!

What snow we had from that last storm melted and we've had nothing but rain and mud ever since. This week's Sunday Stills is Fall Foliage and you got some.
