The closest to a sea I'm going to get

For a while at least!

This is the sea of clouds I saw working on top of a mountain on some radio equipment. There was some very overcast skies but as I got to the top of the mountain it cleared away and this is what I saw!







And this is what I was up there to work on.

That looks a little cold up there. Our tallest mountain here in Hawaii got a bit of snow the last couple of days.

I'll second the beauty of the pictures. I do not like heights, but looking over the clouds was great.

I use to live 25 miles south of S.F. in El Granada. I lived up on top of the ridge. In the summer the fog would come in, and many times a season that would be my view. Driving down at the beach visibility was so limited it was hard to drive over 25mph.....

Where were those photos taken, and at what altitude? There are still trees, so I'm assuming under 13,000 ft?

Height: 1286 m (4219 ft)

Bluegrouse mountain, Kelowna, BC, Canada.

So as you can see the overcast cloud cover was not very high at all. (Relatively speaking)

The view from the city was nice once you got under the clouds though.

Very Nice! I don't know that I could deal with the winters, but it's certainly beautiful.
