The canyon fills with fog a few times per year, usually in winter.

I have spent many months at the Grand Canyon photographing the Condors so I have seen that effect several times. What amazes me is the number of people whom I have met that visit the Grand Canyon for the first time and only plan on spending a few hours there. Imagine their disappointment if the canyon was filled with fog the whole time?
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Another treat for all the fog lovers. I posted this some years ago (2009).  What you see is the city downtown in Vancouver. BC, Canada.

Oh wow!  Really neat.  Glad you posted them.  Jerry says wouldn't it be something to have hiked to the bottom and start back up in the pea soup.  Methinks it would be quite a surprise.  And I remember seeing yours too, Carson.

Those are something else, looks like you could just walk out on them.

No wonder the Indians thought there were so many spirits and all, how else could you explain beauty like that?

The interesting thing about the Grand Canyon is just about everyone gets it wrong when asked what carved the Grand Canyon. Most people think it was carved by the Colorado River.

I've been to the Grand Canyon several times, even flew a helicopter into it once, but  I've never seen it fogged in like that.  That's very impressive.
I've always said, the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and touring the desert by sand rail or 4x4 are the best shows in town.  That includes the casinos, the strip, and the laser show on Fremont St.!

That first step off would be a doozy.   But it's not the fall that'll kill 'ya...It's the sudden stop!
