Riding on Clouds

Posted in Smith & Cox Co

Visiting Glacier National Park in the cool fall has its rewards. The peaks are cold enough for snow, but the trees below are warm with yellow. We were lucky to experience the mix of cold with a warm sun sputtering through the clouds above. The suns heat from the escaping rays would warm the trapped clouds below that would then quickly rise up until the sun was closed off. Without the sun the clouds would drop once again. We were able to stop on a small shoulder of the Going-to-the-Sun road to admire this unusual weather experience. These clouds would whisk through us in their rise and fall. With the drop we’d find ourselves riding on clouds and then shoot through the blanketed mist until the sun showed through again.
