No, this picture was not taken on the Rainbow Loop hike! It was actually taken at Yellowstone but I thought the colors were appropriate.
This morning Ed was kind enough to coordinate the hike around the Rainbow community. The smoke had cleared somewhat but the afternoon rainstorms came early and it is possible that the group got wet. Perhaps someone who did the hike would like to tell us how many there were and whether or not conditions were favorable by leaving a comment below.
