Mountain Glory

With weather patterns changing so rapidly around the mountains, one should always be on ones toes and be ready to get just about anything, and that includes magical moments such as this. The mountains are 'weather makers', and as such, can divert large storms, or create micro-climates in tucked away valleys, or simply show off with a light sprinkle of rain over a small piece of valley floor during sunset, giving way to rainbow glory.

Mountain Glory captures just such a surprise encounter, as during a departure from a gorgeous summer afternoon and evening on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park, with not a hint of rain in sight, we came around the bend at Many Parks Curve scenic viewing spot along Trail Ridge Road to this splendorous view. Not being any kind of a large system of weather, the sprinkle of rain was not long in life, but produced this lovely rainbow just in time for the setting light over Longs Peak and Moraine Park below.
