PHOTOS: Massive Dust Storm At John Martin State Park In Southeastern Colorado

(CBS4) - Colorado Parks and Wildlife shared photos of huge dust storm over the weekend on the Eastern Plains. A park ranger captured images of it at John Martin State Park. That's in the southeastern part of the state near Lamar.

The ranger said he could see the dust storm from miles away and that it got thicker the closer he drove to it.

Crews drove right into the middle of the whipping winds and dust. Visibility was very low.

The dust storm resembled the old Dust Bowl days of the 1930s in eastern Colorado, according to CPW.
