Fata Morgana

As the days of winter lengthen in northwest Montana, we often get the benefits of sunny afternoons up on Big Mountain. If the conditions are just right, the refraction of the sun’s rays form an unusual image of superior mirage. Objects can appear distorted and in some cases unrecognizable. Neighboring mountain tops can even appear as though they are floating in thin air! Fata Morgana - you’ve gotta taste it to believe it.
