These sculpted clouds hovered south of Frisco, CO Saturday morning, behind frozen Dillon Reservoir, as dawn's first light was just hitting Bald Mountain (right).
Rewind 15 minutes to when I was driving towards the east side of the Eisenhower Tunnel, looking up at Mount Bethel, which is the pointed mountain on the right as you near the Continental Divide. I happened to glance up into the deep blue sky and see what I thought was a planet peeking from behind the ridgeline, and I wondered which planet it was. Then, I noticed that the "planet" was hugging the ridge, that it was descending, and that it was also weaving almost imperceptibly. Someone was skiing/riding down the ridgeline before dawn, with a headlamp! Cool! I've seen people skinning up the valley before during the day, but never when it was dark.
