The Hills Are Alive With The Color Of Green

That drought that caused brush fires in California that I highlighted earlier this week, is now a recent memory.  California gets rain in the winter and the hills get green, but this winter , they are green green. These hills are east of Paso Robles, on the way to the San Joaquin Valley.

 

Recent rains have greened up the hills and pastureland in rural California.

A rainbow appears just after a rainstorm in rural California

Where there are clouds, rain and sunlight, look out for the ephemeral rainbow.

    • I didn’t see any burnt out areas along Hwy 46. I know further north in the Big Sur area, they had major fires
