This is what we saw. My son and I were hunting rabbits. He showed me an unusual cloud at the top of the tall mountains. It had a tall vertical tree-like part and several thin horizontal platter-like parts. It was blotchy and dark all over. The several horizontal parts seemed to become bigger. We did not know what it was. We think we should go home and tell the elders about the unusual big cloud.
