Pre-storm at Saddlerock Lake. Thunder and lightening all around with a generous dose of hail and 3 hours of cold rain. Yes, this is the end of July.
Saddlerock Lake before the storm.
The outlet of Saddlerock Lake where Rick, my husband, departed due to knee surgery done in March that's not quite ready for prime-time. We split up the food and I took the stove and fuel and off we parted.
Sunset after the storm.
Up Bishop Pass. Started spitting brittle rain on the pass which proceeded into a deluge on our way down into Dusy. Bless my new rain gear. Thank you Mountain Hardware.
Rising mist from the storm.
Dusy Basin after the afternoon rain.

Diego and Banning fishing.
Camp in Paradise.
Parting storm clouds in Dusy Basin.
No words needed.
Annie on our dayhike up Knapsack Pass. We chose to day hike this pass first and check out the route and be down before the afternoon storm hit again. A summit of Columbine was nixed due to gathering clouds.
Rock Fringe on the way up.
Pano of the other side.

Back down as clouds gather. I was a bit shell-shocked from the previous 2 afternoons of drenching rain.
A telephoto of the lake high in Dusy Basin that we want to visit on the way back.
Never saw the use trail, if there is one. Most of it was under snow.
Resting under my SilTarp in my hammock waiting out the storm that didn't arrive. Enjoyed the rest and continuing acclimation.
