 This picture was taken in the early evening on Sunday, 
26 September at West Sombrio Beach on the Juan de Fuca Trail.  
Fog is just a cloud that occurs at ground level where we can experience it 
more intimately than usual.  For fog to occur the atmosphere must be at or 
below the dew point temperature.  In the picture the fog is located over a 
river valley and the presence of an additional source of moisture there and 
the generally still and humid conditions were enough to raise the dew point 
locally to the atmospheric temperature.
