Mountain Rain
scout high adventure Weather changes rapidly in the mountains. Having your raingear fast at hand is a critical bit of planning for wilderness treks to prevent soggy clothes and cold bodies.

On this day, we arrived at our campsite just before big, black clouds rolled over the high peaks above us. We set up our tents and ducked inside just as the first drops started. After about 45 minutes of hard rain, the storm passed to the east, leaving this beautiful rainbow stretching across the canyon.

I left my tent as soon as the rain let up and was standing in our protected campsite watching the clouds roll away when the rainbow appeared. It was actually a double rainbow and the brightest I've ever personally seen.

The air was fresh, clear, and cool and I enjoyed a peaceful moment with no one else around, no sound but the wind and stream, and no cares or worries. A small treasure.
