It did it before then, started out at Page AZ, and before getting to the
north rim area saw several streams of water going up, over, around cliffs,
kind of like some roads in other sceneries going straight up cliffs. But,
for the money, what the hell....... Can you imagine this just ten or even
five years ago???

Did you fly all the way through to the west end, and then to Hoover dam?
You'll see some really strange river effects if you do. I didn't know the
Colorado could climb cliffs!

FSGenesis, and it's BEAUTIFUL! You have to keep looking back and forth,
almost like IRL, but it's for the scenery instead of other traffic!! You
can become fixated on something to the left, and totally miss some awesome
sights to the right...........

detailed
one ?

Just some low clouds, although IRL it could have been smoke. Arizona has
been trying to keep up with the land of Oz, and doing it's damnest to burn
everything up. Could try loading some real weather out of Tucson and some
other places around there and see what comes up. Haven't seen anything in
2k4 for haze or smoke, but might try some combination of visual distance and
some light precip. That's not the same as coming up on a grey cloud
hovering over the city, or columns of smoke coming up and layering out.
Then throw in some good turbulence when you decide to fly through it! G
Cheers.
Don
