Mini tornado

I was camping in the desert near Death Valley and one came up the valley and we watched in wonder if it would come near. Well it came right at the camp and picked up our (wonderfully self-enginerd misspelled on purpose) shade structure (that we worked on for 5 days) and it lifted it at least 100 feet in the air. We saw our (not so nice neighbors) laughing their head off.

Well to our amazement the mini tornado dumped our shade structure right on top of them. Ha Ha

Amazing little dust devils they are also called for good reason.
