Tall Tales From The Field

Another Fabulous Rainbow

Still photos from last week’s big rainbow at Zion National Park, Utah. I looked out my bedroom window and noticed dark stormy clouds to the northeast and sunny skies to the west. Ripe conditions for a rainbow. But I had to wait patiently until the rainbow manifested as the setting sun was obscured by clouds. I almost gave up. But then the clouds parted and shafts of light shined on the remaining rain clouds.
