My husband and I were coming back from a day trip on highway 24 toward Colorado Springs Colorado this past summer. This full, beautiful rainbow was directly over the road. I had to stop and take photos. It was the brightest, most surreal looking rainbow we had ever witnessed. We could visibly see where it ended and blended into the earth. This rainbow delayed our trip by about 25 minutes. Had we not stopped to take photos and marvel at it, we would have been right in the path of a devastating flash flood that devastated Manitou Springs right on highway 24. This rainbow was our saving grace!
