Our second fieldwork trip of the summer has been blessed; several rainbows have been guiding our way. Yet there is this thing with rainbows, they force you in a difficult position: do you experience the glass to be half full or half empty? Do you cheer for the sun, or groan for the rain, as both of them together bring the rainbow?
I prefer to do the former, and today was a perfect day for cheering. We were offered some clear skies and perfect views of the mountains in the distance, which showed off their little white hats from last night’s freshly fallen snow.
Yes, winter is coming again already in the north, but it makes the wilderness even more attractive.
