No-one else has noticed, but I reckon it's just plain wrong to use the words "tornado" and "campground" in the same sentence.
Imposing looking scene.

You got that right, these RVs don't stand up well, we were in Williams AZ a couple of years ago and a tornado touched down near us, it destroyed 30 trailers at an RV sales lot and derailed over 40 RR cars, plus numerous homes lost or damaged.

I normally have a picture of one train or another as my background but I could definitely make an exception for this. Gorgeous! Thank you for sharing Bob.
It got so darned black I don't think a train would of shown up in a photo, but there was a main track running through there. I'll have to dig my train shots up and post later, thanks for the kind words. Bob

thanks CJ, I would imagine you have seen many of these forming off of the Rockies onto the Front range.
