Clouds or ?

On a ride to Juniper Ridge found these clouds floating around. By time we could pull over due to some fool riding on the bumper the formation had changed. A few minutes before it looked like a huge space craft.
You can see how bad we need rain here everything is so dry.

Can anyone name the clouds here. We knew that there is a name for them and they might be formed by ice crystals. Are we correct?

Looks like a space ship formation

Stopped along the road in Show Low and I noticed this little stream

that went under this bridge but the grass and weeds were to high to see that.

Hope every one had a great weekend and the dads had a wonderful Father's Day


  1. I hope we all get some rain this July...we are so dry and dusty here! Must be summer!

  2. Cumulonimbus? I'm not sure about the ice crystals.

  3. Hi ain't for city gals,
    Yes it is very dusty here as well and you can just smell the dryness of the Ponderosa. We just hope we can get by without anymore fires.

    Welcome Ash,
    Thanks for the name, I am not all that sure about the ice crystals either but my friend thought that was the reason for their shapes.

    thank you both for coming and reading my post.

  4. I don't know what they are called, but they sure are fasinating. Looks like a bunch of UFO's. Too cool!!!

  5. Hi Pidge,
    Yes they do it was very interesting. Had fun watching them.
    Glad you came over today.
