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.
