Clouds over Corona Divide

    • When I find scenes like that on a hike like that it gives me the emotional fuel to do a dozen more.

  6. I really think I could get used to living in mountains when I see photos like yours. Just thinking of the fresh air alone, not just the scenery.

    (I suppose I shouldn’t complain, at a least my city is not heavily polluted like some western cities).

    • The air in the heavily forested and lightly populated areas here is extremely clean and it is obvious by the look of it and the smell of it. I feel fortunate to live here. It is a very sad thing to see the pollution in many of the cities because it is something that surely is within our control and yet we refuse to control it for a variety of reasons, most of which seem to be centered around selfishness, greed and self-indulgence, which does not speak well for our species. It would be so much better if we would discipline ourselves to live easy on the land.

  7. That looks like it was quite a climb, but at least it was snow free. It was worth it-what a view!

    • I hope to hike there a couple more times yet this year, but I’ll have to watch the weather. You can’t always tell what’s going on up top until you get there. I would love to hike the top part of that on snowshoes, but snow always closes the road about 3 miles too soon and I just can’t hike that extra on snowshoes any more. It would be so gorgeous up there when the snow is deep!

  8. That’s a big cloud! I am always blown away by the scale of the mountains!


    Comment by Jo Woolf — October 17, 2013 @ 5:19 am

    • The scale is noticeable here because of the difference in altitude between the mountain tops and the valleys . All along this river (for about 100 miles) the valley is near 2400 feet and the taller peaks along both sides are around 7000 feet. It makes some interesting mountain scenery.

  9. I think you need to change your name from Montucky to Walking in the Clouds. 😉 Love this photo!

    • I don’t get to walk in the clouds as much as I would like, but I really love it when I get the chance. I make a lot of trips in the rain or snow just hoping to break out over the clouds but don’t. It’s all worthwhile when the right day comes along! One June day several years ago I spent the whole day at the mountain top in clear skies and a few inches of new snow. The folks who live in the valley had no idea there was snow up there.

  10. Mighty – cloud and mountains.

  11. What a feeling that must be!

    • It is magnificent, Candace. After I return from a trip up there I start looking forward to the next time.
