Clouds over Long’s Peak (Rocky Mountain National Park)

I spent a cold morning taking pictures of Hallett’s Peak over Dream Lake. As the sun rose and the late morning hikers gathered I started my descent down the trail. On my way down I gazed over at Long’s Peak and noticed the unique cloud formation building above it. I unpacked my camera gear and waited a few minutes as the clouds passed over top of the highest mountain in Boulder County (rising to 14,259 feet).

I’m not sure what kind of cloud it is – does anyone have any ideas? I thought it was lenticular at first but think those build vertical up through the sky and these clouds seemed pretty flat.
