Rainbows | Hana Hou! Magazine

We were chasing rainbows all last year for this Hana Hou! Magazine feature story. I studied the weather and watched the radars to help detect where and when I needed to be at unique locations on the island to see vibrant rainbows appear. Even though we live in the Rainbow State, and see rainbows quite frequently compared to mainland US, it was challenging finding these brilliant bows in picturesque settings and made me truly appreciate each rainbow I now see.
