I know that seems backwards, but it is the sequence of events here.
Once we had set up camp at Goose Lake State Park on the Califonia/Oregon border (or was it the Oregon/California border--LOL--the park was in Oregon, but if you cross the road you were in California). Anyway, once we set up camp we set off to look at the lake, and this is the sight we saw.
We got back to our campsite just in time for another entertaining (NOT) thunder and lightning storm and a good night's sleep in our Little Guy. We were greeted in the early morning by this view looking east.
The thunder and lightning was not nearly as disturbing as the storm described here, as it only lasted an hour or so and we were cozily bunked up in our Little Guy and did not have the grandchildren in tents nearby. Besides, much of the lightning was not followed by audible thunder, and that which was had a very good count of seconds between. None of this CRASH/ONETWO/BOOM stuff!
This is my skywatch for Friday, July 25. I am still on the road. I finally found the Sky Watch icon and got it to post. And here is the address for the new SkyWatch blog where you will find other skywatchers.
