Stationary but fast-changing cloud over Broad Pass peak

We were stopped on the Denali Highway three miles east of Cantwell this past week. I was watching this cloud forming and dissipating over a peak at the north end of Broad Pass. With the wind coming from the north, the water vapor was condensing just to the south of the peak, and then dissipating a few hundred yards further on. I took these photos about five seconds apart. It was fascinating to watch.
