Video: 'Snow Tsunami' Filmed in WY

A Wyoming woman with hopes of photographing some of the state's wondrous wildlife wound up witnessing an even more breathtaking scene when she spotted a 'snow tsunami.'

Ariel McGlothin filmed the jaw-dropping optical illusion while she was exploring the wilderness near the town of Kelly.

It would appear her timing was perfect as the combination of the sun's location, a fresh snowfall, and fierce winds created the appearance of huge waves of snow rolling along the horizon.

The sight proved to be so powerful that McGlothin actually became a bit unnerved by the 'tsunami' and wondered if she should flee the area lest she be swept up in the wintry wave.
