So Scott and I decided to climb Green Mountain after supper tonight. Actually, it was my idea to go for a nice sunset stroll straight up the mountain and he obliged to tag along. There was lightning way off in the distance, so we decided to keep the climb short.
We were warned of this (below) at the beginning of the path. (Click all pictures to make them bigger, all photos were taken with my iPhone.)
I snapped several photos along the way. Mostly flora and fauna shots. I love the vegetation around here but I have no idea what it is.
The view from the top of Green Mountain was quite impressive.
Here’s how high we were above the parking lot we started at. It took us about 20 minutes to get to this point.
As we started hearing the rumbles of thunder, we thought it would be a good idea to get back down to the car and off the mountain. Shortly afterwards we were getting gas when I snapped this photo.
And here’s one more shot from the hotel room window after we got back. The power has blinked on and off a couple of times during this very impressive thunderstorm.
I so very much want to be a storm chaser. I wonder if storm chasing crews need a Linux guy.
