We live in an area that is normally classified as semi-arid, so a sight like this is rare. I took this picture the morning after we got (another) inch of rain:

Nice Jon!!

Early morning backside of our camp. I'm at the edge of a cliff, there's a canyon between me and what looks like an island. It's actually the other side of the canyon along with a large plateau just to the right.

Yes, Lake County in No. Cali. You know how it goes, pictures don't do it justice.

Waking up just about anywhere in Montana's a great view as well!!

Those rocks on the right, are they visible from I-15? I have seen that view, but I can't place it. Lived up in Butte for a couple years.

They are. It's known as the Sleeping Giant. I read somewhere that there was a big earthquake-induced rock slide that caused the formation on the right to look the way it does now.

Certainly unique to have fog like that up there. Thanks for posting the picture.

The Sleeping Giant on a pillowtop, eh Jon?

I was in Helena two weeks ago for a week of training, and ran some hills up around the Capital.  The miles go by faster when there is a good view.

They do indeed. I hate being inside a gym and love being outside running or biking. We've got it pretty good here.
