I took these pictures as I was standing on my balcony last night. About 20 minutes after this a huge thunder storm rolled in and the whole hill side was lit up for several hours. After it cleared, a huge harvest moon rose in the sky. I thought all the action was done for the night, but soon after the moon rose a pack of coyotes started howling and barking (you know you live in the country when packs of coyotes live right next to your apartment). They were so close I was actually waiting to see them on the hill side! They sounded like they were in the field we took the "Palouse Prairie Skirt" photos in. I'm so impressed with the power of nature. This was such an extraordinary end to an otherwise ordinary day.
