Rainbow in a Sunrise

I've never seen a rainbow in a sunrise before. It was beautiful. Though I'm ashamed to admit it didn't occur to me it would rain.

Preamimma Mines to Pyms Road
Lavender Federation Trail

And rain it did. For the record though, the four of us walkers - Graham, Steve and Krystina - not one of us expected rain in early January. The weather forecast didn't include rain, so none of us had even the most basic rain protection. Thankfully, it wasn't very cold. And of course, by the time we finished and were driving back in the car, it was bright and sunny. As expected.

I think this is my favourite section of the Lavender Federation Trail. The first two sections I did, were ok, not great (Murray Bridge to Monarto, Monarto to Preamimma Mine).

Lots of water around too, which was a nice surprise. And lots of rocks too. Pity to see so much moss rock mining occuring, the pot-marked landscape wasn't so great to see.
