You don't have to visit the Grand Canyon in person to pull in a mental picture (although it is most certainly the preferred method). It's hard to take a bad photograph, and straying from the crowds is relatively simple given its massive acreage. But the sad truth of the matter is that we can't all drop everything to enjoy one of the United States' most stunning natural wonders. Luckily, there's a video out there demanding to be turned into your mid-afternoon daydream.

This isn't just a timelapse video featuring an everyday view of the Grand Canyon. As the creators mention in the video description, they managed to capture a rare occurrence on film called full cloud inversion.

"[On] extremely rare days...cold air is trapped in the canyon and topped by a layer of warm air, which in combination with moisture and condensation, form the phenomenon referred to as the full cloud inversion. In what resembles something between ocean waves and fast clouds, [the] Grand Canyon is completely obscured by fog, making the visitors feel as if they are walking on clouds."

Simply put, a full cloud inversion gives visitors the feeling of casually strolling through fluffy fields of clouds. Just when you though the Grand Canyon couldn't get anymore majestic, right?

Check out the full video above, and pray that the conditions are right for this incredible scenario the next time you visit this natural marvel.
