Once in a lifetime sight: The Grand Canyon filled with clouds

The Grand Canyon, already stunning and awe-inspiring as is, became twice that last November 29 when low level clouds filled it to the brim. This scene was made possible by a rare atmospheric condition called a ‘temperature inversion’, a phenomenon where cool air rises and warm air lowers, both meeting at the right spot to create fog. National Park officials say this occurs once or twice a year, but rarely with a perfect blue sky. Amazing what Mother Nature surprises us with from time to time, yes?
