Lightning and Rainbows on the Top of the World

On the top of the world in Mesa Verde National Park – passing storms drag rainbows and lightning with them.  This was yesterday evening’s storm.

Cedar Tree Tower, Rainbow and Lightning

Sunset Rainbow and the 2000 burn (caused by lightning)

View from my house at Far View, elevation 8,040

Old burn area in last light, with storm clouds

Getting a little too close

Every lightning storm since I've been here has caused small fires. This is a reminder that the life-giving rains also bring death-dealing fire.
