Double Rainbow Outside of Canyonville Utah. Gone to See America 2008 Roadtrip

While driving from Zion National Park to Bryce National Park on Utah Highway 12, I noticed a dark sky and then a rainbow in my rear-view mirror. I stopped along the road just outside Canyonville and started to take some pictures. It was great that I had a dark background so I could see the double rainbow. By the time the rainbow was done several other cars stopped. I was the only one with a tripod, which was good since I could take several exposures for later HDR processing.
