Day 9 (June 4th) – National parks in Colorado

After our photo session in the dark, photographing stars, we went back to the same national park (Black Canyon of Gunnison) the next day. It was cool to see everything in the light again and what we did not see last night was how amazing the view was! Amazing and frightening!  Black Canyon is home to...

Day 7 & 8 (June 2nd & 3rd) – Down days with Weather Adventures

As we came in at 2 a.m. after our last chase day it was nice to really be able to sleep in on Day 7, which was my transition day between Silver Lining Tours and Weather Adventures. I will write a complete review of Silver Lining Tours later on but I had a good time...

Day 4 – Chasing with content in Campo, CO

I woke up content but also a wee bit hungover from the celebration last night. For the fourth day in a row we had an SPC Slight Risk with 5% tornado risk to chase. This time in the Oklahoma panhandle and southeast Colorado. Since we already were in the same area (Shamrock, TX) we treated...

Day 12 – Photogenic storms

Day 12 turned out to be a classic Storm Chase-day. We went to Colorado in the morning and drove toward a promising storm, but the roads were not in the same direction as the storm so we got behind and inside the storm again, which meant rain and poor visibility. Fortunately, the storms pops up...

Day 5 – Rocky mountains

On Day 3, we learned how storms work. Today we learned that storms are not always reliable. In the morning we hurried up early from Colby, KS, to go to the Colorado plains. These plains seemed the most likely to create storms today, which basically means: The air needs to be moist so that clouds...
