Pictures of Rainbows Just Don’t Get as Beautiful as These

Just when you thought Arizona couldn’t get any more beautiful, we had to go and write this article. Well, we’re not sorry. Pictures of rainbows in Arizona are among the best in the world due to the clear skies and gorgeous landscapes. You’ve seen beautiful pictures of Arizona, but not like this!

Pictures of rainbows like this are extremely rare. Only in Arizona would you be able to capture something so beautiful. Arizona goes big or goes home!

This rainbow is keeping the Saguaro cacti company. The Sonoran Desert is actually more colorful than most presume.
