Late-June Chase Trip (Day 6): Big Horn Mountains, non-chase day

Filed under: Chase Accounts,Chase Trip 2007,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 5:01 pm

Vince and I are heading west from Belle Fourche for some late afternoon/evening photography around the Big Horn Mountains.  We got wind from another storm chaser about a week and a half ago about amazing wildflowers right now west of Buffalo, WY, so we will head over there for a photography opportunity of our own.  Tomorrow looks to be another chase day along the high terrain here in Wyoming as low level moisture returns northwestward on southeast winds.  The mid-upper level flow will be fairly sub-par, however, southeast winds of 15-20mph can make up for that deficiency and directional shear will be pretty good to support a few severe storms.  We will stay in Buffalo tonight.  Beyond, there might be a chance we head up into Montana for two more chase days Friday and Saturday…with Sunday being a very long drive back to Dodge City to conclude this trip…. we will see.

  1. You’ve gotten some great pictures, Mike. Nice finds. It’s sad that I now know where everything is in Montana. If you’re up there, in sern MT/ern WY, you can actually partially pick up 810 WHB at nighttime. :) Just thought would be an interesting tip. Take care!
