Natural wonder + rare weather phenomenon = Super Awesome

On Friday, November 29th the Grand Canyon was completely filled by a stunning layer of fog. In some of the photos it appears as though you’re looking at the edge of the world. This awesome occurrence was the result of a temperature inversion:

An inversion happens when cold air is trapped near the surface of the earth by warmer air above. Humidity in the cooler air creates the fog. While most only fill up parts of the canyon, it’s rare to see the entire canyon enveloped in a sea of clouds.

As the Grand Canyon National Park Facebook page stated, “Rangers wait for years to see it. Word spread like wildfire and most ran to the rim to photograph it. What a fantastic treat for all!”

Photos by Erin Whittaker, the Grand Canyon National Park Facebook, and Dan Ng, Albright Training Center, NPS respectively.
