California color

Coming from Vermont in mid-winter, our eyes were used to a limited palette of white, brown, and the green of pine trees.  Though most of the week it looked mostly like this:
There was sometimes a little color to be found between the clouds (look closely for the rainbow):

More color could be found in the murals and street art in The Mission in San Francisco. We hit the jackpot on 24th Street. It was hard to capture it all from a moving car, so next time, I think we'll take the tour by foot.

And when the sun finally did come out, it looked like this:

What a beautiful place to visit, and a sight for sore eyes during this very long winter.
