This beautiful campground was nearly empty. A few minutes after we got here, I took the payment envelop and left to go grease the iron ranger. I didn’t get more than a few yards from the airstream before a torrential downpour sent me running back for shelter. Moments later, a lightning bolt struck just to the north of us and connected with the soil causing a flash of fireball in the midst of the sage brush. We stared out the window in disbelief for what felt like an eternity.
