Day 12, July 22. Brown Mountain hike, Lightning from Chiricahua Range storms
|Evan and I started the day with a 3-mile out and back hike up Brown|
Mountain late morning/midday as temperatures rose through the mid to upper
90s. After the hike we ventured east on I-10 to Benson then onward through
the northern Dragoon Mountains to the Wilcox Basin where we ended up
photographing several decent storms with lightning that popped up in the
basing between the Chiricahua and Dos Cabezas Mountains to the east and the
Dragoon Mountains to the west. We ended up with several decent
cloud-to-ground lightning flashes, especially around the Pearce, AZ area.
Unfortunately, the storms did not survive past sunset with the good
lightning ending before the good sunset light started. Nevertheless, it was
a fun shoot!
