Coming back from a side-trip into the heart of Capitol Reef (which included a bit of dirt for the bike to chew on) I started to ride into a thunderstorm. I was thinking of taking more side trips, but they warned of flash flood risks so I wisely opted out.

For a few moments, there was a break in the clouds lighting up the cliffs ahead of me.

The dark clouds of the storm lie ahead of me, waiting.

I’m happy I didn’t camp there that night.
