Cindy mentioned she wanted to camp down in the Huachucas as part of a continuation of her birthday celebration, sort of a tradition dating back to 2010. I told her that I would gladly go back to one of my favorite places. Still way early for the best wildflowers, but with monsoon thunderstorms now blasting the area, things are getting wetter and it's much more exciting! :D I drove down Friday morning to get set up before storms. Cindy & Bobby arrived later in the day. This time it was at Ramsey Vista CG at the end of the road. Turns out we had the place to ourselves the whole weekend.

The weather was quiet Friday, but we did get hit by an impressive storm Saturday evening, well after our hike and dinner. It rolled in from the east and featured some wicked roll cloud action and strong winds with blowing dust down in the valley below ahead of the main storm cells. Rain at camp was no more than .2 inch, but when it got dark there was a fine light show. Very little cloud to ground lightning occurred nearby, which was nice and meant I didn't have to spend much time in the truck for safety. :)
