Inversion layers in the mountains are a thrill, like finding yourself above the clouds or between cloud layers. Higher summits on tropical islands often rise above the tradewind inversion with dramatic effects as the NE or SE trades are replaced by a light W. wind, often drier and warmer. I've been to several such summits in different oceans.
I also remember a dramatic inversion one cold New Year's Day here in Boulder. At the foot of Rabbit Mt., one of our open space parks E. of Lyons, it was cold, hazy and foggy, well below freezing. A few hundred feet higher, it was T-shirt temperature.
