June 2, 2012 - Oklahoma Panhandle, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas

Back to albums

After spending the night in Dumas, Texas, I headed north to hopefully catch some storms later in the day in the area around the west end of the Oklahoma Panhandle. I spent most of the day sight-seeing in clear, hot skies, checking out the Black Mesa area. Storms finally stared to develop in New mexico about 2:30, so I made my way west for an intercept. The storms were high based and fairly weak. Cell service on Verizon was mostly nonexistent out there, so I was operating visually most of the afternoon. Attempting to stay ahead of the dominant storm, I took some dirt farm road (trail) north and eventually found pavement again in Colorado. I stayed with the storm all the way until I got to Kansas before giving up for the the evening.
