Very cool. Very ominous.

It was beautiful, and as you say "ominous." About 16 hours later a freak late May snowstorm began, trapping me in 10-mile Creek for 6 days. The snow got up to 4 feet deep.

Wow! Ralph this one really takes the cake! Great Shot!

Thanks Ross. This was, of course, a once in a lifetime shot of the ash from an American, lower 48 states volcano.
