Stormy Weather

Though we trotted the video camera around with us throughout the entire vacation, oddly I ended up only using it twice, once to capture aspects of the storm that deluged us while we were in Arches National Park and once to catch some condors flying waaaaaay off in the distance when we were in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument.

The condor footage is primarily useless, but during that thunderstorm I got a few bolts of lightning landing not so far away from where we were parked that I deemed worthy of stills:

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
