Rainbow in steam in redwoods

Rainbow in steam in redwoods

Taking the steam train through the redwoods at Roaring Camp, we saw the steam plume over the train but every now and then the driver released a gush of steam that blew out into the woods. Often we could see the steam picking out the beams of sunlight slanting down through the trees, but just once the angle of the sun and the dampness of the steam combined to make a rainbow that rippled through the woods.

Thanks to oceansong for the number of times she mentioned the steam trains while driving us over 17!
