Skywatch Friday - Cloudy Mount Herman

We finally had some rainy weather move in late last week - it's rare not to see the sun, but we only caught a few peeks of it over the weekend. This week's Skywatch Friday post shows the clouds moving in over Mount Herman (elevation 9,063 feet, or 2,825 meters), which is visible over the ridge, its summit obscured. It's not a spectacular photo but I think but it's pretty in its own way; I'll post more photos from this hike before long.
I'm sure I'll climb it again this summer, as its one of my favorite local hikes. Thanks to the Skywatch Friday team for bringing us this great meme every week, please visit the main Skywatch Friday page for lots of great photos.

  1. I think it's a great shot, Al! I love the way the clouds obscure the peak and the rich green color of the trees! Have a great weekend!

  3. This makes me anticipate the beautiful mountain peak behind those clouds. I love the Colorado scenery.

  11. Do you hike alone or with friends?

    My school has the walkie talkie group. Some of the men tease that they have to bring ear plus.

  12. This brings back fond memories. I haven't hiked to so close to the clouds in quite a while. Maybe this summer. :)

  15. The scene looks very Scottish - except for the height of your mountain, which is far higher than anything we have.
