Otis Updraft

This is the rear of the storm we've just let pass ahead of us, south of Otis, Colorado. The view is looking east - the precipitation cascade is clearly visible on the left side of the photograph, ahead of the rain-free base. Moments earlier, this storm dropped 1 1/2" hail. It wasn't an overly impressive storm, but from our vantage point, it was a bit photogenic.
