Pay no attention to the weather radar.....we've decided not to let it have power over us.
In between the thunder/lightning/torrential rain we managed to do a bit of auto hiking today. On our way to Crestview, to return last night's Redbox selection, an orange sand road called to us. "Follow me, follow me".....
It was recently graded and there were many spots where we could see evidence of water running across it. With an eye to the sky we decided to go for it and see where the road would take us. After 5 or 6 miles we came upon a boat launch into what we later found to be the Yellow River. It had clearly flooded in the last few days and the facilities were completely empty. Steamy, hot and eerily empty. No bird song, no frog croak, no sounds except for the river moving along through the foliage.
The sky was beginning to darken and we were a bit gun shy, so we decided to head back to Beluga. Along the way we saw more lush beauty and I wanted to show you some of it.
After dinner and after a particularly hefty thunder storm passed over us, Mother Nature gifted us with a spectacular sunset. With the bad comes the good I guess..
