ESTES PARK, Colo. -- A summer thunder storm that moved through Colorado’s high country left behind some damage Tuesday.
The Estes Park News captured this photo of a tree that had been split in half by lightning late in the evening.
Kris Hazelton said pieces of wood splintered from the tree on the Estes Park Golf Course could be found 100 yards away.
