Late in the day whilst in Scagway, Alaska, the hubby and I decided last minute to take the final train tour up to White Pass Summit and back. Not wanting to brave the cold, I stayed inside the rail car where it was nice and warm and let the adventurous hubby tackle the wild outdoors (ie: the small platform just outside the door). As the train headed up the steep mountain this rainbow came into view. I leaped out of my seat – leaving the purse there, mind you – and clamored my way to the platform where I joined said hubby. I could not believe there was such a vibrant and clear rainbow so I started taking multiple photos before the cold wind knocked the bravado out of me . I reclaimed my warm seat (and purse) then checked my photos. Only after I got home and downloaded the images did I realize there were 2 rainbows – the second is a faint crest above and to the left of the main ‘bow.

Can’t wait to see what inspiration you will get from this photo!
LOL! me too! between this and my Hawaii rainbow photo, i’ve got the ‘full spectrum’ of colors to choose from!
How beautiful. I just love that I get to see places I’ve never been (and many I have) through your photos.
