Monsoon Clouds near Cochise, AZ

Early in July, I drove back from Colorado to Arizona, paralleling the Mexico/US border on Interstate 10 in the intense summer Sonoran Desert sun. The temperature quickly dropped from over 100F to 75F as I passed into the shadow of the lumbering monsoon clouds. I pulled over on the side of the highway to take a panorama of the passing storm clouds before driving on through the rain, hail, and lightning.

Clouds near Crescent Junction

I drive between Green River and Glenwood Springs a few times a year. The rest stop near Crescent Junction along I-70 provides great views of the sandstone cliffs to the north. In the summer, thunderheads build over these cliffs and provide ideal subject matter for a panorama.
