It rained pretty hard overnight. I got up early and hit the trail at 530a to hike into Provo Canyon because I was hoping for some cloudy sunrise magic.
< CAUTION – THIS GOING TO BE A WEATHER GEEKY POST. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!>
I started my hike at about 545. The first mile is a 1-mile ascent of about 500 feet. About half way up, I notice a small clump of fog moving north toward the mouth of Provo Canyon on the west side of the mountain range.
When I was just about done with the initial mile climb, the fog had grown exponentially and was entering through the mouth of the canyon.
I stayed in the general area for a while. In addition to the video above, I took a range of photos here. The lighting changed constantly during the hike and especially at this location.
When I moved down the trail about another mile or so, the fog was staring to consume the whole canyon. You will see it in the photos and videos below.
On the way back the fog was breaking up, gathering again, and then breaking up again.
It was super fun hiking 5 miles and watching and shooting the evolution of the weather this morning. I love what Mother Nature can do…most of the time!
I wonder what is in store tomorrow morning!
