storm sky in arches

We are driving through Arches National Park, and it’s raining. There are big flashes of lightning here and there, but I can’t hear if there is any thunder. The car windows are rolled up against the rain. The gray clouds and sky make a different backdrop, one I like better than the normal clear blue skies. There is more emotion, more drama. This is what this place stirs in me, varied emotion, varied feelings, the gray mottled churning of the sky.

This place is not as simple as a cloudless bright blue sky.

Neither am I.

    • Thanks! I’m glad you like it! The Moab area is one of my favorite places to visit, I love the desert and the rock. One of these days I think I’m going to end up staying for more than a few days at a time.

      It actually wasn’t raining that hard, I think the storm passed just beyond us, which was nice– I wasn’t looking forward to camping in the rain! 🙂
