perhaps a message from God

The weather turned nasty while I was in the middle of my trip. Snow and high winds forced me down to the lower elevations. I'm going to have to return next year--perhaps a bit earlier in the year--to pay my respects to two of my favorite places, Bristlecone Pines in the White Mountains and Death Valley.

But as I got closer and closer towards home I could see some interesting clouds dancing across the top of my beloved Mount Tamalpais. And although I am not a very religious person, I took it as a sign from God that I was home and this is the place I belong. Amen...

I had intended to return home via Tioga Pass and Yosemite so it wasn't my idea, because of the weather, that I had to make the long and somewhat uninteresting trip around the southern end of the Sierra and over towards Bakersfield so I could start on the long, long way home.

But I was rewarded with some rather dramatic cloud formations, which kept my spirits up.

And it's nice to be home, although I can't wait to go back next year, Lord willing. Like I mentioned, I am not a terribly religious person, but when I see clouds like this I sometimes begin to wonder...

I love the clouds you saw. I agree with your impression that it is a wonderful message from God.
