Above a sea of clouds

     Living in a mountain forest a little more than a hundred miles from the Pacific Ocean there are many days that we can look over the rim of the mountain and see a sea of haze and clouds five thousand feet down below.
      It happens constantly in June. In California we call it June Gloom.
      On a autumn day as the clouds begin to move inland from the coast the cloud cover looks like a never ending sea.
      This has got to be one of the most gorgeous autumns in the Southern California’s mountains that I can remember.
