John Hastings and Charlotte Murray travel around the Western United States - Charlotte taking photos, John storing word images. Once Charlotte pulls together the images from the trip that she particularly likes, John writes a story or poem.
Partly Cloudy pairs Charlotte's photographs of clouds and landscapes (many from National Parks and Monuments from the US West) with John's poem "Partly Cloudy," which begins "When I was young I liked to lie / Beneath a partly cloudy sky / Imagining, if I could fly on the back / Of Pegasus. ..."
