From Tridell looking south about 60-80 miles is the Book Cliffs. Most days it is clear enough to see them gradually rise out of the desert, with a big cut where the Green River runs through Desolation Canyon on to Green River and Moab. For the past month or so there have been quite a few big thunderstorms at night and it is awesome to watch the lightning flash across the whole southern horizon. Hearing the thunder would be fun too, but it is a little far away for that. Here are some pictures we took the other night. Yes I am proud of them. I have wanted to have a camera I could do this with for quite some time, so yes I was excited when the first one turned out. These were on a 30 second exposure.
