Rainbow myth

Dating back to old Europe, there was an Irish legend saying that Leprechauns bury pots of gold at the end of the rainbow. It looked like I did find the end of the rainbow and it was in the Northwest corner of Wyoming, where Yellowstone National Park lies, the oldest and most famous National Park in the United States. The rainbow seemed to end at the lower Yellowstone falls, near Canyon village but the ‘ugly truth’ is that there is no end to a rainbow. Rainbows are actually full circles, except the Earth itself gets in the way of us seeing the complete circle….but do I really want to know the truth or live the legend?
