Some Photos From Nearby Grasslands

We were at Santa Rita Abbey Friday afternoon and Saturday - no rain out there either. Two photos here of yesterday's sunrise.

Mt. Wrightson through the cottonwoods (above) - which have not completed changed over to golden yellow yet. But after the heavy July rains brought amazing greens, the grasses on the hills are now fully brown (below).

It is the time of the walking sticks out there - they migrate to window screens that face the sun from late October to early December, and then vanish for rest of winter. I assume that they are green during the summer, and then gradually change to gray/brown along with the grasses.
