It seems like people often see things in the clouds or the rocks that look like something familliar. We might say "Hey that looks like Yogi the Bear!" Or may be something like "Doesn't that cloud look like the car in Back to the Future", or something along those lines of conversation.

Post up your pics that look like something else. I'll start.

Here's a rock formation in the South Platte of Colorado I took last year. Only when I got home & looked at the pic did I see the 60's girl. I cropped the pic for you to minimize distractions.



I think it looks kind of like Mary Tyler Moore or a girl from the 1960's.

Let's see what you folks have.

She's on the left, with her hand touching her chin, looking down & to the right. She has a big up-do hairstyle.



Here's a even more cropped version

Edit: the shot is just of her head & face.

In the second one I see and old man with a wrinkly penis carrying an orange, 4 paper clips, and a toilet brush.

Jesus, or Ted Nugent--you decide.

I can see the dog and the raccoon in the first one, but the 60s woman must be hiding behind that big rock.

But how about this: Looks like my partner's about to walk into the mouth of a giant JTree Pirhana


Edit: Okay, I see the woman now. But I'd say the hairstyle is more Tabloid Alien than 60s human. But can you see the big dog below her?

If you squint real hard, it looks like some of our presidents faces in this.

Great additions! I love the big fish & the sea-horse/doggies.

The big chief/ted nugent thing is cool too.

Does anybody have a pic of the "black cat" on El Cap? It's over by the Tangerine Trip.
