I took this flying out of Utah on my way to California to get out of the Utah winter haze. In Salt Lake we experience this awful weather phenomenon called ‘inversion’ where all the icky pollution gets trapped below the mountain ranges. It gets so bad in the winter it becomes hard to breath. However, sometimes the haze creates the most eerie, yet beautiful, scenery. I was stuck by this scene because of it’s beauty but also by the strange notion that it wouldn’t ever look like this if not for human pollution in the air.
