Trillium Lake is a lake situated 7.5 miles south-southwest of Mount Hood in the U.S. state of Oregon. It is formed by a dam at the headwaters of Mud Creek, tributary to the Salmon River. It was created by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife in 1960.

The Columbia River Gorge began forming as far back as the Miocene (roughly 17 to 12 million years ago), and continued to take shape through the Pleistocene (2 million to 700,000 years ago). During this period the Cascades Range was forming, which slowly moved the Columbia River's delta about 100 miles north to its current location. •

I think I never saw one this clear and complete 🤔 And even though a rainbow never really has a size, this one looks huge! I don't know if you have noticed the tiny white dot on the right, but thats a pretty big ship actually! What an epic view in the esturay of the Columbia River!
And of course I have a vlog episode of the day we saw this one! ;) As usual, the link is in the bio!
