This was the end of the first day of a week long trek to the top of Roraima, the highest (2723 m) table mountain (Tepui) in Venezuela, and what a start!

The dry season should have started long ago, instead countless thunderstorms supplied plenty of rainshowers and this particular cumulunimbus cloud pushed a layer of cloud upwards to the stratosphere during sunset.

I thought these clouds only occurred in the high/low latitudes during the coldest of winter. Being in the tropics this came as an awsesome suprise.
