Somewhere on Route 127

It’s been extremely hot in Southern California, up until yesterday, when the weather broke, and we had a 15 minute downpour of rain. The massive fires raging on the mountains above Burbank, Sunland and Tujunga (near Los Angeles) seem to have been brought partially under control. The firefighters say the rain helped a bit, but the erratic winds that came with the rain didn’t. My brother, who lives close to the mountains in Burbank, is breathing a guarded sigh of relief. I’m keeping fingers crossed for further containment of the fire.

I realize I missed the SueBee and Kat blog’s 4 year anniversary on September 1st. While I’m not able to post or read as frequently as in the past, I do continue to enjoy blogging. Here’s to hoping the upcoming year brings a bit more free time to read lots of awesome posts.

The photos I’m sharing today were taken using my iPhone in the Southern California desert this past May. I was driving home after spending several days visiting an old friend in Pahrump, Nevada. The drive was long and lonely, the scenery was beautiful. A sandstorm kicked up, adding atmosphere galore. Had I not been intent on reaching the main highway before dark, I would have gotten my Nikon out and taken many more pictures!

The picture of the rock features a hobby I took up a year or so ago… painting scenes on rocks that I’ve found, most picked up on various beaches. I find it relaxing, although I’ve realized with this one that my eyeglasses need updating… too much squinting to see what I was doing. ~SueBee

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
