"This composite picture shows the inversion and the view from Eagle Mountain looking east on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2010 (above) and Monday, Jan.11, 2010 (below) from the same standpoint."

Most days it's beautiful here in Utah. But as the days pass, the pollution builds in the valley.

I don't know the scientific reasons of way pollution gets trapped in the valley only in the winter months, but I do know it's nasty.

Last week, it was really bad. I needed to find a photo showing that, too.

I was reminded of a composite Ashley did years ago and thought I'd go back to large hill I had been at a week early to do the same type of thing.

It didn't turn out that amazing, but helps give the idea of the gross air. Not to mention, Bryan Jones nailed it showing us the inversion from a plane. And, in addition, I've been here a couple months and I still cannot stop starring at the mountains.

When is spring, again? I can't stand this snow and dirty air.
