Best places to see rainbows

Celebrated in song, art, photography and legend, a rainbow is a simple optical separation of light by millions of water-drop prisms — a perfect example of the whole being greater than the parts. But, as Dolly Parton put it, “If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

Manoa Valley, in Honolulu, home of the University of Hawaii.  Incredible rainbows on a daily basis.  So common, the UofH teams are the Rainbows.  Not very manly, so the football team switched it to Rainbow Warriors and eventually just the Warriors, but the University of Hawaii Rainbows was the original name...

Cimadone, near the beginning of the movie "The Deer Hunter" Robert DeNiro's character spots sun dogs in the sky and explains what they are. I don't think I've ever seen a sun dog.

A friend and I were driving home from work when she spotted two rainbows in the sky.  I told her a rainbow is a reminder of God's covenant with Noah never to destroy the world again by flood. She was fascinated by that.   My friend is  real party girl and alcoholic.  Next time I went to her place, I saw a bible study book on her coffee table.  Never thought I'd see the day she would have a book like that!
