The drive from Salt Lake City to Bozeman has always been the best part of the drive for me. It is scenic and enjoyable then the other half, but that’s just me. For the first time in years I’m up here in July which is great because it’s a time of the year that i normally don’t see and so far it has been great. The amount of vegetation and wild flowers has absolutely stunned me. I never would have thought that it would be this green, but then i always arrive at then end of August when school starts.
When i got out of the pass on hwy 287 i greeted with a shower and dual rainbows. The last time i recall seeing rainbows that strong was in the Redwoods of Northern Cali. I had to stop! I immediately started looking for the high ground to get away from the road and luckily found one place that had no traffic in Gallatin Gateway. I pulled over grabbed the camera and started shooting. I’m sure the people on the ranch behind me were wondering what that guy was doing. Looking out now i can see another good thunder storm brewin and a chase that might happen.
