This photo was taken on July 2nd, 2014 while I was up in the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness in Southeastern Washington, which is a short drive from my house. After a late evening of hiking I started the hour drive home when I saw a flash of light in the distance and sure enough it was a summer lightning storm heading straight for the wilderness. I drove to one of my favorite vantage points overlooking the North fork of the Wenaha and squaw peak. I started snapping off lang exposure ranging from 1 to 2 minutes as the storm closed in. Finally I was able to capture these bolts lightning up the night sky and actually hitting Squaw Peak (shown in the photo). Shortly after this photo was taken I had to retreat to the safety of my vehicle as the storm passed overhead.
