So all the people who came to see a mighty deep gorge see . . . mostly nothing.

Did I see Nessie in the third photo?

Daily fail article aside, these are some really cool photos.

Those who decided to skip Black Friday shopping in favor of a trip to the Grand Canyon

Easiest decision ever.

Trapped pollution - who wouldn't want to see that?

I've been there five times.  Once was with about a third that fog and some additional low cloud cover above the fog.  I was in awe of the natural beauty that was so unexpected.

The Grand Canyon is so much much more than the jokes about a giant hole if you take the time.

At first I thought it was "the most awesome pictures of DOG filling the Grand Canyon".

Boy did that article disappoint.

Now that's how you close the Grand Canyon during the next government shutdown.

It's funny that they Brits think that clouds/fog is "pollution" as said a few times in the article.

I got this great picture of fog in the Grand Canyon:

Come on out to S.F., you can see the "amazing fog" fill the bay almost every day at 5pm.
 
2013-11-30 09:28:24 PM
Cool Indeed.  Pix accompanying tale way better than Lesser Evil's (mesees whut he did there).  Temp Inversions not all bad --
 
2013-11-30 09:28:25 PM
This is a terrible photo, but here's the same effect at 8500 feet on Mount Reynolds in Glacier National Park. The peaks in the distance are from 9500 - 10,000 feet in elevation:

The trail at right drops off 1500 feet straight down the north face if you slip. The guide book says never to attempt it if there's snow on any part of it. Oops.

Agreed, been once and trying to get back next year.

I bet the Indians raised the rates for that day.
 
2013-11-30 09:46:23 PM
At least it wasn't like the inversion that killed a bunch of people in Pennsylvania in the 1940's Link Now THAT was pollution.

I think watching a thunderstorm roll through the canyon is a bit more fun to experience.

    Politely disagree with the article saying inversions are a rare event. The more time you spend in the high peaks you will realize they aren't that rare at all....that said, never fails to melt my brain.

There's a bit of difference between being on a mountain above the clouds, and seeing a canyon filled with clouds.

You look up plenty high enough in elevation.

Not if they're both inversions....

A temperature inversion is NOT a function of pollution:  it's a result of specific weather conditions in which the temperature of the atmosphere
increases with altitude in contrast to the normal decrease with altitude.

/very common here in Western Montana
//very beautiful to come down the hill into the Missoula Valley and there's a sea of fog with only a few building rising above:  always brings to mind my vision of Avalon
///biatch for travelers though since flights are frequently delayed and/or diverted
////slashies!

Wow.

Spending a week at the Grand canyon is on my bucket list.
 
2013-11-30 10:28:45 PM
I took this shot an hour after my dad and I finished our cross-canyon hiking trip.

Yeah, I've seen that before. Somehow the hangar fired off all of the fire-retardant foam. I love the A-10 engine peaking over it in the back

almostsane: biatch for travelers though since flights are frequently delayed and/or diverted


It's a nightmare for air quality too...growing up in Helena we had to check the paper before starting a fire every night because the constant inversions trapped all the wood smoke.

6800 feet. Not all that high and well below the usual cloud ceiling at the south rim.

SOMEBODY used too much detergent in the wash....

In other news...I'm glad my mum took me on a Grand Tour (tm) of Navajo country and the Grand Canyon when I was 13.... I got to stay at a 'resort' (read: rustic cabins) on the North Rim.

Reminded me of the pictures of the fog rolling over the mountain range into Bluefield WV.
To the left is Virginia, obscured by fog. To the right is Bluefield WV on a bright sunny day.
It looks like a lake overflowing its banks.

...wrote the "journalist" who has never watched the "weather report" on "TV."

Temperature inversion, temperature inversion, temperature inversion!  I love how the Daily Fail repeats everything five times, like a little kid learning a new word.

/It was a temperature inversion...

maddog2030: Come on out to S.F., you can see the "amazing fog" fill the bay almost every day at 5pm.


Unless I've suddenly become vastly unfamiliar with the bay area, and the definition of 'a bay', then no, you can't see the same phenomenon. Because while you might get some fog, you aren't getting a canyon full, and you aren't getting the same cloud-effect.
