As we traveled down Rich Mountain, the skies darkened considerably.

Cloud formations are so fascinating to watch in the mountains.

We headed back to the hotel, hoping to arrive before the storm hit.

Barely made it. A few, fat raindrops fell on us as we crossed the hotel parking lot. Then, a deluge!

I’m grateful that we were safely in our hotel when the thunderstorm hit. Rich Mountain Road would have been horribly dangerous in this weather.
