As the sun rose into a hole in the clouds to the east of Carmel State Beach, I turned and saw a band of rain illiminated by the first light of the day.  As the sun grew stronger, a rainbow formed and it lasted about 20 full minutes.  The shape of the mountians often creates a hole to the east of Carmel and these rainbows can form fairly often!
