Storm clouds over North Sterling Reservoir.  Looking up the Cunningham branch from Sunset Point.  There is a nice figure eight walking path here that sports many of the flowers seen here.  But you have to pick the right times.Irv at North Sterling Reservoir

The May 30, 2016 tornado just north of North Sterling State Park.  I was shooting a picture of a Penstemon, looked up, and dashed to the car to get a different lens.  It was very calm and I’m not sure most of the boaters noticed it.Tornado at North Sterling State Park
