The clouds are doin’ shit


Me: *takes a grand total of fewer than 25 pictures on a 7-day cruise to Alaska*

Me: *goes to Mount Rushmore for the first and probably only time and takes approximately 30 pictures*

Me: *sees a weird cloud formation. Takes 50+ pictures of it*

‘Tis truth.

But in my defense, it was a pretty weird cloud formation (these are the two good pictures, haha).

Edit: these are Kelvin-Helmholtz wave clouds, also known as billows or fluctus. They are very short-lived clouds (the ones I saw lasted less than five or so minutes) that form when two different layers of air—one moving faster than the other—meet horizontally.

What sayest thou? Speak!
