Was anyone in Grand Teton yesterday? Apparently, and unusual cloud show.

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

There seem to be a lot of news photos and all are kind of poor quality. I'm optimistic we'll start seeing high-quality images at some of the usual places once the good shots have been processed. It's only about a 7 hour drive for me, and a winter trip there has been on my list for some time. I'm just too swamped with work, it seems.

That's certainly better than the news sites I've seen. Still, it looks a little flat - maybe a cell phone pic?

There is enough detail there to suggest a better camera than a phone. I'm also guessing that a fairly long focal length was necessary to get that view from the visitor center.

Those are lenticular clouds. They form from moist air being forced upward from the wind blowing over a mountain. The moisture condenses to form a flat pancake-style cloud.

You'll see them quite frequently in the Rockies and other mountain ranges, but they usually aren't quite as dramatic as in the photos above.
