Partly cloudy

11 April 2012 around 6:15 p.m.
Tall, billowing clouds to the south 

The photo above reminds me of Oregon.  Sometimes a domed cloud or fog would form over a high point, almost as if it were clinging to the landscape like a cap or a beanie.  My co-worker (Hi, Hillary!) was from B.C. and called that type of hat a tuque, so we called this "tuque fog."  The thin clouds wrapping over the tops of the puffy clouds above are getting close to being tuques!

Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus)

P.S.  The title of this post is a tribute to one of my favorite Pixar short films, Partly Cloudy.  The clouds tonight reminded me of the clouds in that movie!
