This past weekend, glorious gifts were gently placed in my open hands; gifts of breathtaking scenery, connectedness and tender, sacred, funny moments with a generous and loving kindred spirit.

One of the gifts is a Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH camera. Yes, my blog will once again include photos. I know, it's been a long dry spell since my rant at HP and I heard you all murmuring behind my back, wondering what it was going to take to get a camera into my hands. Everyone can take a collective deep breath and offer up a hearty gracias! are some pics* from my weekend trip to South Carolina. The drive takes you through the Cherokee National Forest and the Great Smokey Mountains. Suffice it to say, I was humbled and wanting desperately to be a passenger instead of a driver so I could crane my neck to take in every vista, mountain stream, soaring hawk and mountain range.

On the drive back early Sunday morning, I was navigating through driving rainstorms and low clinging fog. As I entered a 15 mile stretch through the mountains, the rain let up a little and the rising sun sliced its rays through mountain passes. In front of my very eyes, rainbow, after rainbow, after rainbow materialized, arching over the road from one mountain top to the other. Some were low enough to the ground I could see the rainbow's end on the pavement and as I drove through them, the air around me changed colors.

Luckily, there were no cars behind me.

Coasting, awestruck through arches of diffused light

What a gift...thank you darling.

*these are not 3 pictures of the same rainbow, but 3 different rainbows materializing one behind the other

Isn't that the BEST camera? If you haven't already, buy a case and put it on your belt or around your neck so it is always with you. Great photos - looks like you were right there at the end of the rainbow. I have been on that very same journey, beautiful area.
