Chase Area:  Eastern Colorado
I targeted Limon to Denver for supercells via upslope.  I sat and waited east of Denver for a few hours until 4pm-ish when a storm finally developed 5 miles south of Denver.

HP Supercell - Denver, Colorado
I flanked it and watched as it organized and began to show signs of rotation.  When cloud base rotation picked up significantly a tornado warning was issued.  It appeared to be too outflow dominant to support anything tornadic, however a brief spin-up occurred under one of the wallclouds.  This may have been outflow induced.  The storm began to accelerate eastward as it morphed into a squall line / bow.  Strong winds seemed to be the only threat after that.
