In the winter you never know what the days weather may bring until you drive up a mountain.  Most of the little towns around here are near the Eel River, and the moisture rolls in from the ocean each night and blankets the valley in a dense fog.  Sometimes the fog is really clouds, and the day will stay overcast.  But sometimes you can drive above the fog and encounter…

…a sea of clouds so dense you feel you could walk out onto them.  Seeing this, you just know what the gods up on Mount Olympus must feel like.

The mist curls and climbs its way up the mountain sides, clinging to the trees in hopes of defeating the suns rays.  Failure is inevitable, but no worries, night will bring a second chance for the fog to triumph.  As for today…Sunshine!!
