Mountain Thunder by LAlight Mountain Thunder by LAlight
Such a crazy day of hiking, shooting, and overall amazement on the Lake 22 Trail. By the time we reached this waterfall, it we had heard several long rumbles of thunder. Unaccustomed to the weather in WA, I foolishly asked *blyndspy if it was an avalanche. :giggle: But the sky darkened, the clouds thickened, and it began to rain harder.

Little did we know, the weather would soon switch from the moderate rain you see in this photo to snow pellets and then finally to snow. We couldn't believe how quickly the snow accumulated in just a few short minutes!

What an unbelievably beautiful experience. :heart:

Well captured! Glad you made it out of the snow :snowing: the weather in the mountains is always a surprise :omg: I got caught in a snowstorm in the Bighorns on June 9th of last year--snow total was 15 inches :frustrated:

Oh my gosh! It was hard for me to imagine seeing snow in the summer until I went to WA last summer...and the snow is just always there on the mountains! Made me realize that, perhaps, our "mountains" in WV are more like big hills. :lol:

I don't know if I'd rather one or the other...they've both got something special to add to the photograph/hike. Funny you say that, the weather really does cement the memory, as I can recall the weather on just about every hike I remember. :)

Thanks Dread!

I live vicariously through your hikes with Addam! So glad you endure the elements and share the beauty.
