Rainbow Over The Hudson

7-8-2017

Good day on the river, good rapids in the gorge! This wet, rainy, cold summer has kept the water up so rafting is wild and fun . I miss the summer sunshine, heat radiating off tanned skin, endless blue sky. Today was again wet, misty low clouds floating ephemerally over the mountains, drizzly rain drops adding to the dark swirly water in the rapids. Near the end of the trip, where the river calms itself into swift flat water, it opens out onto longer straight sections between curves, Gore Mountain comes into view. The sun momentarily peaked from between billowing grey clouds catching all the misty wispy airborne water, lighting it ablaze with a dazzling brilliant rainbow that arched completely across the river. You could almost see the pots of glittering gold at either end where the translucent colors touched the ground.
