Mountain fog~Nature Notes~January 26, 2012
We don't get fog down here in the desert. I believe I could count on one hand the number of days that we've had fog in the last 30 years. However, when the clouds spill over the mountains and settle down, there is fog up there, like last weekend. I love to drive through it. Everything looks unfamiliar and strange. It's like being in a different world. (By the way, while I was driving through this fog, it was clear, but windy, in the desert). I could imagine getting tired of the fog day after day after day, but it is a real treat occasionally. Nature Notes for January 26, 2012. To visit Nature Notes, please go to: http://ramblingwoods.com/
