Storm over the Capitan Gap

The storms in Lincoln County are usually very exciting due to all the lightning that comes with them. Much of the time they form over Sierra Blanca and move east toward the Capitan Mountains (pictured), however this storm formed on the north side, moved south over the mountain then changed directions and headed back northeast.
