Giant Clouds Invade Idaho! Close Encounters of the Cumulonimbus Kind

Holy Moly, we were chasing the sunset in eastern Idaho and then started following this monster weather formation that kept growing and growing. The cumulonimbus clouds gave up some rain and hail but as they headed for Wyoming which is where that alien ship landed in Stephen Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" this cloud reminded us more and more of the movie. Alas we didn't see a spaceship or little green men but it was one terrific show by mother nature. If you want to see this in a pure form go back about 6 images in my photostream. Blessings.
