Fog and contours


Shifting gears from steamboats and such ...

Yesterday morning at Huntington WV there was a bit of fog in the valley. Not much, but enough to bring out the contours of the hills on the Ohio side.

I counted at least five ridges over there (one is difficult to see unless you zoom in at the highest resolution, so it's hard to see here). I can't tell you how many miles away the farthest visible ridge was as the crow flies, but it has to be measured in miles.

It was interesting how the damp air brought out the parallel lines in the contours of the southern Ohio hills.
