Rare weather event fills Grand Canyon with fog and gives us this breathtaking sight

The rare weather phenomenon of temperature inversion occurred in the Grand Canyon on Friday 29 November and Sunday 1 December and allowed visitors to witness a breathtaking sight of the place completely filled with fog. This event happens around one time every decade and that’s the reason why every single person who was there couldn’t help but take some picture to capture the epic moment. Even rangers wait years to see it, so it’s no surprise they were excited too.

The phenomenon of temperature inversion occurs when a layer of hot air at higher altitude blocks the colder air underneath from rising. The fog is given by the humidity of the colder air layer. An inversion of this magnitude, where the entire Canyon is covered in a blanket of clouds, is even more infrequent.

Waiting for this amazingness to happen again, enjoy the pictures that were shoot the last weekend.
