Rainbow Peak

Rainbow on Shoulder of Mt. Everts My new nickname for Mount Everts is “Rainbow Peak.” After two recent thunderstorms, rainbows have decorated the shoulder of Mount Everts, bathing the hillsides in an ethereal light that resembles the mythologized landscape of an Albert Bierstadt painting. One of the appearances included a primary and secondary rainbow.

Remember the song we learned in grade school: “red, and yellow, and green, and gold....?” According to the book, The Rainbow Bridge, although we recognize discrete bands of color in the bow, the number of actually hues can be indefinite, with shades imperceptible to our sight hiding in between the bands.
