@clare9876 taking in the view near the summit of the Stansbury Island yesterday, which easily felt like the top of the world. Normally, this would be an expansive view of the Great Salt Lake. This inversion is nasty, but creates absolutely stunning scenery up high.
Hoarfrost: The Science Behind Frost on Steroids ************************************************** "No, this frost isn't on performance-enhancing drugs. ________________________________________________ First, to produce any frost, you need water vapor in the air over cold ground with a surface dew point at least as cold as 32 degrees.
When these water vapor molecules contact a subfreezing surface, such as a blade of grass, they jump directly from the gas state to solid state leading to a coating of ice crystals.
So what provides the boost for frost to grow into hoarfrost like this?
One or more days in a row of freezing fog (fog with air temperatures of 32 degrees or colder) is a perfect scenario." -Jon Erdman
Spotted this big guy along the river this morning, and I have to say that being so close to this amazing creature was quite an experience. Such an awe-inspiring balance between intense beauty and raw power... it was well worth nearly freezing my ass off! I would have been content to sit and watch him all morning if I weren't so short on time (and warm clothes). #baldeagle#provoriver#provocanyon#beUTAHful#utahwildlife#hikeutah#finallyfoundone
My phone camera could never do it justice but this hike was soooo beautiful. You are literally at the top of Zion overlooking the whole park and Angels Landing. 😍 It is definitely a new favorite of mine. Thank you @taylormadecollective for inviting me!
@cjislamovic and I hiked the BEAUTIFUL and strenuous 8 miles to observation point yesterday. When we got to the top, there were about four others who had pushed through the trek so I snapped a few photos to email them. This guy's smile is so genuine and real, and it just makes me beam😀
