SUMMIT COUNTY — Last week’s series of intense Front Range thunderstorms built up clouds that towered above the Continental Divide to be illuminated by the sun setting in the west. That was a recipe for some rather nice sunsets and cloudscapes.
This was the night Denver and Colorado Springs got pounded with hail and tornadoes. The orange cloudbank is the top layer of the cumulonimbus clouds, towering well above the 14,000-foot peaks of the Continental Divide.
