This was just peaking as I pulled into the road to Fossil Falls, Owens Valley area. The peak is Red Hill, a basalt cinder cone with red and black dunes off of it. The cloud is a lenticular and yes this is one of the only places that they get this color, into fire red in some cases. The ghost in the middle of the dune is quite scary, basalt sand blowing towards me at 40MPH. Had to be quick and cover camera and face up as it would hit in a couple of seconds.

    Little wonder the Native Americans worshipped a Great Spirit, and that falcons, hawks, and eagles were associated with the deity. The sky spoke to them.
