Yes, that is smoke at the far right coming from the top of one of the mountains.
I also would probably not have stopped at the rest area that was also a scenic point for Lake Bonneville. Yes I know you don't see any water here but that's because this area and the surrounding used to be the bottom of a massive prehistoric lake bed. It's a really odd feeling to be standing there after knowing it used to be completely submerged.
The ride was uneventful and beautiful as I continued through Utah and back into Wyoming where I again crossed the Continental Divide at two points this one, and another at Elevation: 7000 feet
As I approached the area around Laramie Wyoming on I-80, I spotted a beautiful rainbow
I was rather surprised as I continued on to realize it was actually a 'double' rainbow but was unable to get a photo of it. That was fine, it was an experience just to see it and take in the beauty of the colors and the scenery of the Rockies.
So I was even more surprised to find another rainbow further down the road, though from the curve, I suspect it was the other end of the same rainbow.
And even more thrilled to see again, the double arcs
There was so much I saw, so much I did and still so much I missed! I look forward to the next time I head west!
Thank you so much to
I miss you all *hugs*
Days 20 and 21 of gratitude were for beauty, safe travels, wonderful friends and a wonderful Sir Dragon Preacher who was waiting for me when I got home!
The only thing that could have made this trip more perfect would have been if he could have had the time off to go with me!
