Dafuq???

There was a pretty nasty storm that just rolled through, but wow...

That's just unheard of. Any tornado west of I-25 is fairly uncommon, but a tornado on Mt. Evans??? A couple of years ago, I remember one up around Bailey.

I'm no expert but the article says some were above the tornado and could see into the funnel.

Usually tornados from below clouds, so the cloud would block such a view correct?

Also, from those photos it shows the tornado forming from a cloud above the top of the mountain (unless there was another, even higher mountain).

Accuracy isn't really much of a priority in today's journalism.

Though, it doesn't look like any of those pictures came from the summit. Mt. Evans is over 14k.

I had a friend up there at the time, he's a photographer, so please do not redistribute these and respect that he is copyrighted (I don't know jack about that shit so I'm just trying to cover the bases for him):





This is what he had on his phone at the time. He said it lasted several minutes, and had time to actually drive around for better shots.

Lord Jesus that is high. Just got a flashback of the unshakeable body aches I got staying in breck at 10k

That photo above tells me, was anyone really above the tornado? Lol. And if so, how did they see through the clouds.

The writer probably got confused with a hurricane where you can see into the eye.
