Spring continues to be on the cooler side around here and it has been more cloudy or rainy than sunny. We decided to go for a hike on Sunday anyway. We walked through a rain shower near the top of the mountain only to see a rainbow when we made it to the peak. Lucky us! Have you noticed that we are often rewarded in unexpected ways when we head out and enjoy the day rather than waiting for the ease of a sunny, warm day?
The sky and clouds were dramatic. We could see dark clouds to the south, north, east and west with pockets of rain to the north and east. We were pleased with our perfect timing and enjoyed the top for several peaceful minutes before heading down not sure if we were going to get soaked by the rain blowing across the lake.
In this post from February, Freezing rain creates sparkly mountaintop wonderland you can see the trees at the top of this mountain encased in ice and sparkling like diamonds on another day we chose to go out in less than ideal conditions. Nature sure rewards us with her beauty!
