Summer Storm over Mono Basin

Evening Storm over Mono Lake

Summer storms wander unpredictably over the east side of the Sierra Nevada. There’s no telling, one day to the next, where they might occur or how long they may last. The practiced eye can often tell by mid-day, though, how stormy the later afternoon and evening may be.  Thunder was booming across north-central Mono County by mid-afternoon this day in late July and gave Lee Vining a good bath around dinner time.
