Glorious clouds are my mountains in the Florida twilight landscape.

And speaking of mountains. I had just the best time viewing the clouds on our recent trip to Colorado. We made the vertical climb 10,360 feet to Brainard Lake just outside Boulder. Spectacular!

If getting that vertical is exhilarating, coming back down to earth can be too.
Here's a road sign you just don't encounter in the Florida landscape.
