Yes, More Pictures

Supposedly today is the last day of the fog, as a storm system that’s headed our way will come in and break up this high pressure that has been sitting on top of us. It’ll be sad to see our old friend go. Here are a few last pictures to see it off:

Even the snow on the ground has been bitten by the pogonip. Since it’s less likely to melt here than on the trees, it’s built up over several days.

The afternoon sun tries to cut through the mist, only partly successful.

Chad West got a unique angle on the fog, looking down on it from Heavenly Ski Resort. Here is a thumbnail of one of his shots, looking down at Lake Tahoe completely shrouded in the stuff.
