KVAL-TV Reporter/Fill-In Anchor Chris Liedle took this amazing photo of a storm cloud and rainbow last week in Eugene, Oregon. Chris said he took the shot whilst hiking Spencer Butte, a prominent landmark in Lane County, Oregon, on the southern edge of Eugene, with an elevation of 2,058 feet (627 m).

Spencer Butte is accessible from Spencer Butte Park and has several hiking trails to the summit. The tree cover on the butte is predominantly Douglas-fir, however the butte is treeless at its summit. The butte is the tallest point visible when looking south from downtown Eugene.

The photo itself was tweeted in response to another ‘rainbow storm cloud’ that was spotted by Victor Gensini in Norfolk, Colorado.
