Lightning in the Huachucas

Lightning in the Huachucas

The sky island mountain range behind my house is called the Huachuca Mountains. Translated that means Thunder Mountains. As I stood on a mound in the middle of a cow pasture I was able to experience the full power of the name as strike after strike of lightning created a thunder that resonated of the canyon walls like a sound system with the base turned to eleven. I captured many images and this one is my favorite. At 9,600 feet, Miller Mountain on the left is the highest peak in the range. Its little sister, Carr Mountain, received the strike captured here.
