Clouds hugging the mountains
When I leave the desert floor and head up Highway 74 to our local mountains, I never really know what the weather at the top will be like. Sometimes it is clear. Sometimes not. This weekend, it was clear and sunny in the desert, but up on top of the mountains, clouds were moving in, it was breezy, and soon clouds were everywhere! I thought it might even be snowing at the higher elevations, but I don't think it got that cold. As I came around one corner, this is what I saw. Don't you just love the way the clouds hang onto the mountains?
