Description

The Sangre de Cristo mountains, part of the Southern Rockies in Colorado, are bordering the Wet Mountain Valley to the West like a gigantic wall with nine peaks higher than 14,000 feet, which creates some of the craziest weather patterns imaginable. And some of the most interesting cloud formations, either drifting up from the valley floor some 7,000 feet below the ridgeline, or forming over the mountain tops and rolling down into the valley. If the conditions are perfect, you can witness both kind of clouds developing, which makes for a spectacular show of diverse clouds - as visible in this image.
