Five years ago today I enjoyed a fine foggy evening on Signal Hill.

When I arrived at the Cabot Tower my gaze was first drawn across the bay where Cape Spear was being overtaken by a snug blanket of fog:

Beautiful as that sight was, I soon noticed another blanket approaching from the north, so I walked up Ladies Lookout Trail where I was just in time to see Quidi Vidi and Bawdens Highland disappear in the fog:

After a few minutes of swirling, the fog retreated into the background behind the trail. This next photo shows the start of Sugarloaf Path near Quidi Vidi, with the fog picking up the last light of the day behind it:
