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.
That is the truth! It rained very much yesterday, but seem to have left with you. Just cloudy today. Hope you are driving out of it tomorrow.ReplyDelete
BTW - rainbows have very special place in my life. Thanks for sharing this one.
Beautiful photos of the rainbow and the rock formations. I love that area of the country. The colors and rocks are so beautiful. Have a wonderful trip.ReplyDelete
You are in one of my favorite places in the entire world! Moab is fun and kooky, something unique in Utah. Enjoy the red rocks and gorgeous scenery. With all the rain, I'm betting there are lots of wildflowers blooming.ReplyDelete
Spectacular! Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pix! It will probably be sunny in Idaho on your way back.ReplyDelete
