California’s Moro Bay

Along California’s central coast, Moro Bay is a home for one nice marina and one large ubiquitous rock.

I also forgot the ubiquitous smoke stacks of the local power plant.

Stormy Zion Video

Today’s rainstorm ripped through Zion National Park and pretty much kept me inside my vehicle where I film its ferocity.  It was tough focusing because of all the water on my windshield. Watch the wind blow the water along the surface of the road


” I’m Only Happy When It Rains”

It finally rained at Zion National Park yesterday after a month of parched earth.  Things come alive when it pours and it really poured.  Waterfalls appear and rising fog adds atmosphere.  The Virgin River at The Narrows was closed due to a flow rate of 787 CFS, which is cubic feet per second.

Watch Rain Shower Appear and Disappear

Monsoonal moisture over the Grand Canyon produced much needed rain this week but watch as a cloud produces a rain shower and watch as that rain disappears.. Hot dry air from the depths of the Grand Canyon is probably responsible for the dissolution of the rain. I thought for sure I was going to be rained on. Watch in HiDef at Full Screen.
