Tonight a storm rolled through that shook the entire mountain. I tried to capture some pictures of the lightning, there are a few good ones, but nothing compares to viewing it live.
This lightning strike on the left just might be the one that did the damage to the pine tree (Or the ball of fire above).
The top of the tree is gone, so is the 2ft ant hill that was at it's base.
The tree was split right down the center.
