It was one of those classic Northwest weather days when you can say “If you don’t like what it’s doing now, wait five minutes.” As we worked on the DeRoux Creek trail, the sky drizzled, then cleared a little, then drizzled, then cleared, then the wind came up…and so on. It’s been unseasonably warm, and humid with the rain and drizzle.
As we hiked out, a perfect arc of rainbow appeared over the creek. Rick commented on how amazing it is to see such a thing. It’s true. Rainbows have cultural baggage as images. But you can forget all about that and just look at one in the wild and be happily damp and amazed.
