Put a cap on it.

Ahhhh, so much I want to blog about, and yet bound by law to keep my trap shut. Soooo, in the spirit of that.....

I ran across an internet photo that's been circulating for years that has always facinated me. But was never sure if it was photoshopped or not, nor did I have the care to find out until last night...

I found this link on this site. The comment from the person who seemed to have sent the pic was:
Anyway you picture of Schiehallion was interesting and reminded me of a picture of Mount Ararat - where mythology suggests Noah landed with the Ark. I hope it may need to save and open. The cloud on top is real, known in meteorology as a "cap cloud" formed by strong upper atmosphere winds forcing cold and relatively dry air over the top of the mountain.

So I'm thinking, wow, this is real? I looked up a few more before bed last night and thought I'd share them. These are the rest of the cap clouds I found online...
