Lone Peak rainbow

"Fans make their way into the Pleasant Grove Vs. Lone Peak football game at Lone Peak High School, Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2009. Lone Peak won ending Pleasant Grove's undefeated streak."

The other night I was driving to my football game assignment and it began to rain.

The thing about Utah is you can literally see the rain coming across the valley. Unlike back east, there aren't a million trees blocking your view.

As I made my way north, the sun started to come back out and rainbows were popping up. I won't lie, rainbows are abundant here. I've seen more than I can remember since being here.

I quickly pulled off to shoot some pictures since I could see the entire rainbow arch. It was the first time I've seen one like that.

However, I wasn't quick enough. It vanished and rain was falling again.

By the time I got to the game, it was both raining and sunny. And the rainbow was back.

Working quickly, I got a couple decent frames before it again dissipated.

Florida is a little like that, too. I remember as a girl boating on the many lakes in Lakeland and watching as it was raining on one side of the lake, but sunny on the other. Seems like I saw a lot more rainbows back then, too.

But that never compared to the views I got in the Southern California desert--though unfortunately for a thunderstorm lover the rains were rare.
