Rainbows in Paradise Valley
It’s that time of year when rainbows spontaneously arise. I could see the stirring of the elements from my home in Livingston as the sun was slowly settling into the mountains. I called to my canine partner Yeshe and we loaded up to go rainbow hunting.
Upon arrival we hiked around on the river bank until I could see some glowing above us, out of view of our position. So we huffed and puffed up the hill to gain a better view. Good things were about to happen. Yeshe and I plopped down in the grass to study some beautiful flowers and I could see the a potential array starting to form as the low afternoon sun was playing with mild showers over the Absarokee’s. Bingo! The glow grew slowly into a rainbow, faint at first. and It just kept getting better and better as we scurried from place to place finding different vantage points. Then, as quickly as it came… it went.
I love this magical place with all of it’s unsettledness and whimsical ways.
