    I love to see such sky.
    Well, except when I’m a couple of hours out from a trailhead
    and surrounded by big tall trees.
    In a nice open area — bring it on.

      Once while on a climbing training trip upon the grass covered summit of a small mountain in Germany we decided to bivouac for the night. Great exposure to the higher peaks to the west and enough relatively flat ground to be comfortable. A couple of the team members set up small tents with aluminum poles. The rest of us moved to the edge of the tree line and set up poncho hooches. A pretty good thunderstorm moved in on our short peak and some of those in poncho hooches decided it would be better to be in tents. Then the lighting came. And a couple of us pointed out that the last place we would want to be right then would be on an exposed slope with aluminum lightning rods sticking up above us. The tents quickly emptied until the storm had passed. Later that same trip while on a heavily wooded slope we got caught at night in another pretty strong storm. For a couple hours we all sat with our backs to the base of large trees listening and feeling limbs being blown down around us. That is a pretty scary situation really. There is no safe place to be but feeling heavy limbs crash and thump down on the ground around us made us decide that they were more a danger than the possibility of a lightning strike on a particular tree one was under.

        Right on.
        We camped in a cirque.
        A storm came and lighting hit the high points and cloud to cloud.
        The sound seemed to go round and round up there and then headed out the valley. A few trees were 50 m. from the tents.
        We stayed in and watched.

    You can tell its CO2 because the front stuff is black like what comes out of cooling towers. ! ;-)

    But not because of heat.
