Alien Mothership Sighted in Sierra!
When this strange cloud showed up before sunrise, I knew some weather was on the way. Twelve hours later I was sitting out a wind storm in the Royce Lakes Basin, which had gusts of 60mph, so strong they bent the poles of my REI Chrysalis one man ultra lite tent. It shredded(and I mean shredded)my brother's and nephew's emergency tube tents. Good thing I brought plenty of duct tape. "L" Lake, John Muir Wilderness, Sierra Nevada, California, USA. August 2010.

Woke up 12 hours later in a cold wind storm(like a night game at Candlestick park). All my beef jerky was gone, and the inside of my tent was plastered with Michael Jackson posters. Really weird.

Geez, I'm glad to see you back with us!

Until now, my dream had always been to wake
up with 'Janet Jackson' posters.

Go figure..

I had to google "lenticular" clouds for additional information. That's a treat to see something like, especially with the alpenglow backdrop.

Truly rare - perhaps unique to get such a round form with that red tinge. Lenticular clouds sure can bring rough weather.

I always get up before the sunrise and I was lucky on this morning.
