Skywatch Friday

For today's Skywatch I'm posting pictures sent to me by my friend, Smita. All these pictures were taken in the mountainous region of Arunachal Pradesh (on the way to the town of Tawang). With the fog and the clouds you can barely see the mountain top here. With altitude ranging from 10,000 to 13,000" the views are spectacular!
One often comes across herds of yak. This solitary yak is silhouetted against a cloudy sky!
Only in the mountains you'll come across a sight like this! So beautiful and so peaceful.

My thanks to the Skywatch team for hosting this hugely popular meme. For the best skyshots around the world, go to

Some very dramatic pictures!!! We live in the mountains and get fog like this on the mountain that we sometimes have to go over. It seems like every time it rains, there is fog up there. Once there was a car pile up of over 60 cars that wrecked in the fog. A yak, I never would have guessed! I don't think I've ever seen one. And what a peaceful lake nestled down in the mountains.
