May 25-27, 2011: I thought I'd try to chase a slim chance of upslope storms in Colorado on May 26, which meant May 25 was a travel day. Then May 26 was a bust day, and so was May 27. Still, I got a few pictures. Probably not a thousand miles' worth, but here they are. Share

25 MAY 2011 - This was a travel day for me, from Norman, Oklahoma, to Colby, Kansas, in anticipation of driving into Colorado the next day. This was a Kansas sunset. Photo by Chris Kridler, chriskridler.com 26 MAY 2011 - I drove all the way to Greeley, Colorado, in hopes of upslope storms, even though I knew the cloud cover could be a problem. It was. No storms. Photo by Chris Kridler, chriskridler.com 26 MAY 2011 - I gave up and headed back east for marginal chase chances the next day. This was shot on a vast windmill farm that is under construction in east Colorado. Photo by Chris Kridler, chriskridler.com
