White Sulphur Springs, Montana, Supercell

After leaving Billings, Montana, midafternoon, we drove north, then west, across sparsely-populated Big Sky country. Without cell service, and using nothing but our eyes and a Rand McNally Road Atlas, we targeted a storm well to our west along US-12. Although the Castle Mountains obscured the base from our view as we approached the storm, we managed a lengthy view of two decently-rotating wall clouds beneath the updraft over the Bair Reservoir., as seen here. Not a bad find at all. Taken June 12, 2013.
