We had some impressive storms on Friday. My wife and I spent some time on the other side of town, on a mountain overlooking the valley, and we had amazing views of some thunderclouds, some up high and some hovering low, over the valley. Yet at the same time, other parts of the sky were blue.
We went for a drive and as we were headed up Bunker Hill Road, one of my usual cycling routes, the road was blocked and we suddenly had to stop. We later learned that there was a mudslide, and some trees had been knocked over by the storm. I sure am glad I wasn’t out riding there at the time!
Later, the rain stopped and the sun came out, and we were on the lookout for rainbows. As we drove up a big hill, sure enough, we spotted part of a beautiful rainbow.
We continued our drive, and I took her on the route I rode the previous weekend. That’s something we’ve taken to doing. A lot of times if we feel like going for a drive, I’ll take Sarah and show her a route I’ve ridden. It’s great to be able to share the places I find with her, even though she isn’t into cycling. And I always see things a bit differently, too.
We saw a lot of beautiful scenery that day, but the rainbow was the highlight of our trip.
