Rock Creek Sunset

Sunset over Rock Creek at Spring Creek. A little more than an hour after this photo was taken, a thunderstorm erupted over Rock Creek. A strike on the ridge over Goat Creek left a tree in flames. Subsequent heavy rains extinguished the fire, at least above ground. Despite the rain, the fire must have continued to smolder deep in the roots of the tree.
