I spotted this lovely, heart shaped cumulus cloud on Monida Pass, which marks the Montana and Idaho border, in June of 2004. It looks like it was just put together by Cupid -- with bits of white fleece left over. Though this fair weather beauty is tilted on its side here, I'm guessing a lusty gust of wind was waiting to right it. Monida Pass is at an elevation of 6,824 ft (2,080 m) and is located on highway I-15 in the Centennial Mountains -- just west of Yellowstone National Park.
