Stormy Evening Drive, Curecanti National Recreation Area

A Stormy Summer's Evening in Curecanti
August 28th, 2013

Late August of 2013 I drove through Curecanti on my way to a hiking trip in the San Juans.  As I came down Monarch Pass into Gunnison it was clear that a crazy thunder and lightning storm was rolling west.  I spent about an hour driving through the park chasing the storm and it was amazing!  I was lucky to be riding the edge of the storm and got no rain, no close lightning nor thunder, but the light show in the distance was intense.  The colors and the light of the sky, with the sun about to set was perfect.  By the time I got to Montrose, it was pitch black and pouring, but this short trip through Curecanti will be forever etched into my memory.  I really like this series of photos...
