We began the day in Miles City, Montana with a weather briefing at 8 am. We determined that our target city would be Sidney, Montana. Once we reached our target city we determined we should drift west to Wolf Point. Once in Wolf Point we stopped for lunch and waited in a park for storms to initiate. After waiting a better part of the afternoon we got dinner. After dinner we picked up a cell south of Wolf Point. We followed the cell for about an hour until darkness made chasing difficult. We fell in behind the cell and took some lightning photography before heading to Minot.
