The Grand Canyon filled with fog and everyone freaked out

Dec 4, 2013

Just after Thanksgiving, while the rest of America was deep in Black Friday tunnel vision, mother nature was intent on offering up a treat of her own. The Grand Canyon filled with fog in a rare weather occurrence known as an inversion. We’re no meteorologists, but can pretty well assume that an inversion is when the clouds that usually live way up high go way down low. Given that it’s usually pretty dry in Arizona, it doesn’t happen all that often.

“Rangers wait for years to see it,” said the Grand Canyon’s Facebook page. “Word spread like wildfire and most [rangers] ran to the rim to photograph it.”

The photos sparked some viral attention this week, and no wonder—they’re pretty incredible. Photos below via Grand Canyon’s Facebook and My Modern Met.
