Driving down to Española a few days ago, I was struck by this lovely cloud formation -- a lenticular cloud over the Sangre de Cristos, with something more cumulussy in front of it.
Though admittedly, lenticular clouds aren't particularly uncommon here. The Sangres, in particular, seem to form eddies that lead to all sorts of interesting lenticular cloud structures.
Lenticulars apparently are good indicators of lift: glider pilots
seek them out. I guess if we had more moisture in the air, we might
have seen some lenticulars over the field Sunday morning when we were
flying R/C planes at Overlook.
