Not anywhere near mountains, but found this while hiking around the somewhat rural Lake Stanley Draper near my Oklahoma home. The entire area was covered in an icy glaze of verglas, making for a very surrealistic hike. Imaged in December 2013.
Nice shot Mark, and Happy Holidays!
Thanks, Larry, and you're not the first person to have an alien come to mind. Merry Christmas and have a great new year to you as well!
