Looks more like smoke from a fire than it does fog.

Great detail on the engineer for a 30 mm lens...I bet he was really on the horn.

My money is on it being smog - Cajon has been known to collect a bit of it.

Cajon can get pea-soup thick fog in the spring. Years ago I was camping out at the end of Martinez Spur, and that night it got so foggy I had a hard time seeing the trains passing by on the mainline not over 150 feet away. There have been other times up there that driving that winding road from Summit down to Cajon Jct was not much fun after the sun went down. Horsethief Valley, east of Summit, can get socked in until well into the morning on occation. The attached photo is from such a morning, taken from that favorite camping place at th eend of Martinez Spur.

That engineer, looks like Diesel Dave.
I've seen the fog so thick at Summit, that you couldn't see the signals from 20 feet away.-BMT
