I took these photos this weekend when I had lunch with my son Jim and my daughter April at a truck stop restaurant just outside of Shafter. My daughter was heading home in her Uhaul with her puppy Chorizo. That's the puppy sticking his tongue out at my camera in the photo above.

Just as we got to the truck stop and stepped out of the car there was this incredible rainbow. Thankfully I had my camera with me! Be sure to click on the photos above to enlarge.

Please stop by A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
