Travel theme: Multicoloured

I’ve been road-tripping at the height of monsoon season and have weathered quite a few storms along the way. But one of the advantages of storms is the possibility of a rainbow when the sun finally breaks through. I’ve experienced more than my fair share of rainbows on this trip; here’s one over some wild west terrain in Utah.

And another over Yellowstone National Park.

Sticking with the multicoloured theme, check out the spray-painted motors at the Cadillac Ranch in Texas.

Here are some cheery looking motels along Route 66 in Amarillo, Texas.

And finally, a multicoloured and rather spooky-looking landscape at Mammoth Hot Springs in Wyoming.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

      Thanks Tish, it’s an otherworldly place to see in person, and a photographer’s dream! Glad you like this week’s challenge, looking forward to seeing your post. xxx Ailsa

  2. I so want to do route 66 and lots of others as well.

      It’s a ridiculous amount of fun, Mrs C – I was giddy like a schoolgirl when we finally got onto Route 66 outside of Oklahoma. We only did a short stretch, as far as Gallup NM but, oh boy, it was fun and I couldn’t stop singing ‘Get your kicks on Route 66″ – one day I want to drive the whole route from Chicago right through to LA.

    Your rainbow pics inspired me to remember the last bits of one paralleling St. Louis’ Gateway Arch.

    Wow! That third and last picture are fabulous, as well as the theme you chose for this week, Ailsa! Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us.
    (As probably most of the people) I love light and colours. So it wasn’t very hard to create a suitable contribution. Here you are http://lanterfanteren.blogspot.com/2013/09/multicoloured-fall.html Hope you enjoy my interpretation.

    Have a sunny weekend everyone of you and welcome to my “multicoloured fall” =]
