Sky Watch Friday



While at the Great Sand Dunes last summer we noticed a storm rolling in. A friend and I decided to hike a ways up the mountain to get a better view, and it was well worth the hike. The colors of the sun peaking out from the clouds, the dark heavy clouds over the dunes, the green trees and the bright dunes all made for a beautiful scene.

The storm didn't make it to our camp until much later in the night. It just so happens that that night a bunch of people decided that it would be a good idea to sleep outside. They missed the memo about the storm coming in. We woke up the next morning to find wet sleeping bags and people sleeping in the vans. It was nice being warm and dry :)

For more Sky Watch photos, or to add one of your own, head over to Wiggers World. Have a wonderful Friday!

Rain can be fun - especially when seen from a distance - and when it wets others!

Well illustrated!
