Rainbows in the Stratosphere

On the way home from climbing on Saturday, we caught these beautiful clouds right at sunset. The ice is very refractive, and if you check this one out large and on black, you can really see the incredible colors formed by these ice crystals.

A perfect wave cloud hovering over Arthur’s Rock this afternoon. October, 2006.


Light up the sky

A rare late season storm is rolling through. I sat outside for a while and actually managed to capture this amazing bolt. This could have been one of the best lightening shots of my life. But I forgot to set the camera on manual focus, and the darn bolt blew out the middle of the picture! Still, I think it’s pretty spectacular.

Took this shot last week. This was about the brightest rainbow I’ve ever seen. The storm went on to spawn tornados just east of us. Colorado, September 2006.

Still posting shots from the family vacation last week! Though, this will probably be amoung the last of them. This is a picture from Friday, after my parents headed home and as a huge storm rolled in to the area. Mark and I had kicked around the idea of climbing in this area but the weather dictated other pursuits. There is actually a couple of routes on this formation, but most of them are basically free-solos, and not on our to-climb list right now.


Fire in the sky above Devil’s Tower

Just got back from a great vacation camping and climbing with Mark and my parents and my little bro Kev. I’ve got almost 300 pictures to sort through, so I’ll be a busy little girl this week. Here’s a shot of an awesome sunset over Devil’s Tower just to keep ya’ll happy.

Took this shot after climbing in Vedauwoo last Saturday. A big storm blew through in the afternoon, chasing us down the rock with rain and hail. As we drove away, we saw this huge swath of land, probably a mile wide and 5 miles long where the ground was so deeply covered in hail, it looked like snow.
