The Bridge To Asgard

Rainbows are fairly rare in these parts, so it was with much excitement that we saw this beautiful meteorological phenomenon from our back deck this morning. I think this may also have been Georgia's first sighting of a rainbow.

In my childhood I always wished to find the leprechaun's pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. However, in my teens I read a lot of Norse mythology and now the first thing that pops into my mind when I see a rainbow is Bifröst, the bridge leading from Midgard (the realm of mortals) to Asgard, the realm of the gods.
