This is a photo of a cyclist in Fairbanks, Alaska at -45F taken for the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner on January 23, 2013 entitled Cold and foggy commute. Check it out.
This related to my article about cycling at -55F so I thought I’d post it! Enjoy!
I did not mention the ice fog in my article, because I’m unsure if it occurs in other place. Fairbanks, Alaska is located in a valley surrounded by hills. When it reaches -40F or below an inversion layer occurs and causes all the wood smoke, moisture in the air, power plant smoke, and (controversial) boilers to settle on the ground rather than rise. This is the reason in the winter months Fairbanks has some of the worst pollution in the country. For more information check out wikipedia: ice fog.
The ice fog can reduce visibility to a 1/4 mile or less… Watch out for those cyclists, runners, walkers, and others not afraid to tackle the cold temperatures!
