Started today in Scottsbluff after a down day at the Badlands yesterday. Storms today would fire on weak easterly upslope flow on the Rockies and drift off the mountains. After lunching in Limon we headed down towards Peublo and The Raton Pass and played with some hail. Not much else on offer today with terrible structure and frustrating pulse type storms. This is a very tough pattern we are in at the moment. After eating dinner we went to Capulin Volcano and shot the Milky way under the most amazing clear skies I have ever seen.
