GBI Media Contest June 2022 Submissions, Part 2

This is part two of our gallery of submissions to our June 2022 media contest. Part one can be found HERE.

Appropriately, we kick things off with our second place finisher, submitted by AmeriCorps member Allie Nowicki. Allie, who is serving as a biological technician at Camas National Wildlife Refuge, describes the above image: “Storm clouds rolling in on the refuge in what has been a very rainy spring for eastern Idaho.”
