We have been driving for two days. We drove, west to east, across the state of Oregon, west to east, stopping to spend a night with my brother and family, across the state of Idaho, and today, north to south nearly across the state of Utah. And it has rained the whole way. The. Whole. Way.
That is what most of Oregon and Idaho looked like--very green and very wet. Today it rained so hard in Utah it was scary to drive in. You couldn't see anything but rain beating at the windows faster than the wipers could wipe. Nerve-wracking.
Tonight we are in Moab, Utah. The scenery is spectacular and it is raining, but not as hard here. After dinner we decided to take a scenic drive, doubtful we would see much because of the rain, but as we came to the top of the mesa we saw a rainbow behind us and pulled into a view area.
A double rainbow.
It ended among these rock formations. Magical. One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
The moral of today's story: if you like rainbows, you have to put up with some rain.
