Hot air in cold air

Saw this while driving to work one morning. It's on 95'th Street just north of Arapaho in Boulder County, Colorado. Technically, I think I was in Lafayette.

You can also see little sections of Olde Stage Road (on the mountainside) which is a favorite bicycling route. The road from which I took this photo is also a popular biking route.


I cropped and color enhanced the original some. Here's the original:


The foreground is a hay field.
