Third night of camping in Utah’s Canyonlands, U.S.A. Storm brewing and heading our way. Winds were pretty fierce, and you could see the rain following with these clouds. Almost lost my tent that evening, with the winds. Only had three stakes holding it down after this went through. Thought i might be sleeping on the ground under the rainy skies, ha ha ha. Taken with a Kodak Z981, hand held. No time to set up on tripod with this one.

  • Thanks alot, Cliff. Yes it is a scary feeling. I got out of mine, and i bet it was 50 or 60 mile an hour winds. It was a wander my tent was not gone.
