Arizona Monsoon 2019 - Chase Day 6 & 7 (17 & 18 August) - Back to Arizona

Recommended Posts

The storms systems that gave us rounds of supercells, tornadoes and stunning lightning has finally shunted East over Ohio and points East and is just too far for us.

Chase Day 6 started from Burlington, CO and headed down past Limon, CO and through the mountains to Aztec, NM via stunning mountain passes and high plains. No storms today, but the scenery was stunning! The hotel in Aztec, NM, The Step Back Inn was an absolute stunner of a hotel with victorian decorated rooms and amazing cinammon rolls for breakfast!

Chase Day 7 saw us head from Aztec, NM to the Four Corners monument at the meeting point of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, before an amazing TexMex lunch at Mexican Hat, UT and then Monument Valley. No storms today, but a great sunset, intensified by wildfire smoke from a fire over near Lake Havasu City, AZ. After dinner we found a pitch black area near to Camp Verde, AZ and did some astrophotography (pictures to follow!).

 As we decended down the I-17 to Phoenix, it was still 100°F at 11pm at night.
