A rainbow stretches across the Mississippi River on a misty, windy day near Keokuk, Iowa. A strong east wind was stirring whitecaps on the river and keeping the pelicans grounded. The pending storm nearly kept me from my nightly run, but I’m glad I went ahead as planned. I would have regretted missing this scene.
