IMG_1029 Sorry I didn’t get the butterfly post up today. Too much going on at work, home, blah, blah, you don’t care so why make excuses… But tonight after dinner I was out in the driveway loading up the rig for a Daddy-Trifecta camping trip when I saw this: a full-on, end-to-end double rainbow.

IMG_1030 Full doubles are one of those things that you should always stop doing whatever it is you’re doing to check out. Because unless you're saving a drowning child or intercepting a North Korean missile, chances are nothing you're doing is anywhere near as cool as a full double. My camera lens wasn’t wide enough to catch it, so here’s a video panning from one end to the other.

IMG_1040 The South end appeared to be right in front of Mt. Olympus, about 7 miles away. For the Best Ever explanation of How A Rainbow Works, check out this post from last August. I’ll have the butterfly post up Sunday PM/Monday AM. Have a great weekend.

Wow indeed! The world is just such a fascinating place, isn't it?

And did you SEE the sunset Saturday evening? Absolutely stunning.

WD- It so totally is. I get reminded of that pretty much every time I do a post.

KKris- I missed it, being camped in a deep canyon up in the Subletts. (But with the late June sun, and being a couple hundred miles North & West of Salt Lake, I was able to read without flashlight till 9:45PM!)
