Pale sky at 9:30, but...

...there was a surprise rainbow. Friday morning I was walking with my friend Gabriella near the Jet Propulsion Laboratory -- the Angeles Forest trail still is officially closed because of the Station Fire, and we were walking on the access road that leads into the forest. There are days when the sights here take my breath away -- the hillsides, with native flowers basking in the sun, old oaks, and the creek rushing down toward the watershed -- but Friday was not one of those days. The light was pale, and the shadows vague. And the landscape was no longer surprising to me -- until Gabriella pointed upward at the most unexpected and perfectly shaped rainbow arched tightly above a bluff. A big surprise because it wasn't even threatening rain. One never knows do one? I almost walked past it without so much as turning my head.
