In April I could see a storm front approaching in the weather forecast. Daytime high temperatures would drop into the 80s. So I threw my camera and camping gear into the car, and headed to the park with a list of the sites I wanted to explore or revisit next, to deliver in the app.
I hiked to a natural bridge, and enjoyed great views with sunlight streaming through clouds. I explored an old mining town site, and found wildflowers thriving at higher elevations than on past visits. Two jets saw me with my camera on the edge of a canyon, and they took two passes each way, angling sharply up right in front of me so I could get a great shot. On one evening, I caught a sandstorm over Mesquite Flat Dunes, back-lit with golden sunlight by the setting sun.
On the way home, sunset light was lighting up rain showers at MonoLake. It was an eventful and productive trip. I can't wait to return!
