From late morning until midday on Thanksgiving Thursday, Bitterroot Valley folks were treated to a huge rainbow that reached from the Bitterroot Mountains to the Sapphires as they looked north.

The beautiful colors were the main photo subjects by cellphones and cameras Thursday.

The rainbow was replaced by lots of rain as evening approached and some huge wind gusts during the overnight hours.
