After a very cold night in the single digits Fahrenheit, the morning was absolutely calm, no breeze. As the sun illuminated the snowy landscapes around Natural Bridges, the hoarfrost that had formed on everything overnight glowed in the early sunlight.
That’s when hoarfrost forms: cold temperatures combined with high humidity and no wind.
Which brings a gorgeous sunny morning with the sun lighting up the frost crystals.
The freezing cold doesn’t feel near as bad without a breeze, let alone wind. By comparison it feels quite comfortable.
