view from glyder ridge of temperature inversion over snodonian hills at sunrise

Snowdonia Inverson

Glyder Ridge, Snowdonia

Temperature inversions cause cloud and mist to form at lower altitudes. This was a spectacular sight and one that lasted all morning, but it was at its best in the twilight of predawn. I understand that temperature inversions are actually quite common in mountainous regions but it seems often I am out of luck!

To get the image I actually camped overnight on the mountain. Although I have an excellent sleeping bag and was plenty warm enough I actually woke up to find all my water frozen solid along with my breakfast of bananas! This temperature inversion and the sunrise that followed were the icing on the cake. This is certainly my most sucessful trip to Snowdonia to date.
