Grand Canyon National Park experienced a once-in-a-decade event that was extra spectacular, making it more like a “once in a lifetime” event, according to park ranger, Erin Whittaker.

The weather phenomenon that flooded the Grand Canyon with clouds is called inversion: warm air on the upper parts of the cannon trap cold air and fog on the lower parts. Ranger Whittaker said that temperature inversions typically happen once or twice a year, but never to this extent. Last weekend, the timing and weather were just right and what resulted was a breathtaking scene and a photographer’s delight. Whittaker said that many visitors to the Grand Canyon were at first flustered by the fog and clouds blocking their view, but after they learned that it was an unusual and special event, they changed their tune.

“The canyon gave us a second rare inversion in three days. Freezing fog dominated yesterday … by the end of the day the sun was able to burn it all away no doubt making many first time visitors very happy. Word spread like wildfire and most ran to the rim to photograph it. What a fantastic treat for all!” wrote Whittaker on the Grand Canyon National Park’s Facebook page.
