Late in the afternoon of July 4, 2019, Mother Nature decided to provide some of her own fireworks over Wyoming’s Powder River Basin. Torrential rain, lots of lightning and some wind sent us into the relative safety of our vehicles parked near Steckley Road overpass on top of Logan Hill. Nearly an hour later, it was finally raining light enough to head outside again and record the first train over the hill after the storm. At 7:34 p.m., a southbound Union Pacific coal train climbs to the top of the hill as the weather moves away. The mud was incredible, and so was watching the lightning for the next couple of hours.
