Sunset Storm Clouds
Hello Cove fans! Ranger Nicole here. Get ready for some fun posts this amazing month of August! For now, I will tide you over with some amazing photos of the eastern canyon wall before and during an amazing little thunderstorm that passed through. (Do I lose points for using the word “amazing” too many times? Sorry, can’t help it – look where I work!)
Check out that amazing columnar basalt. The patterns are beautiful!
This storm rolled in right as the Atlatl/spear-throwing program was winding down alongside sunset. Sadly we didn’t get much rain (it’s been a HOT summer!) but there was a great lightning show for our visitors after they’d finished throwing spears!
