Looks like rain in the distance033

Yep, that’s rain.  It made our tour of the park so cool and pleasant!!044 Of course, we were prepared for anything!038

How clever! Front row seating???058

It looks like MORE rain is coming our way!076The top formation looks like the ruins of a castle to me. Notice the petrified log on the formation in the foreground.079

These formations are called the “teepees”.087
