Each month, Arizona Highways’ editors write captions to accompany the photographs we use in our stories. It can be a tricky task, so we thought we’d turn the tables. When we post a new photo here each month, you’ll have a chance to write its caption.
Write a good one, and you might earn an autographed copy of Editor Robert Stieve’s book, Arizona Highways Hiking Guide: 52 of Arizona’s Best Day Hikes for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
This month, get inspired by Jake Case’s rainbow at Marble Canyon, then post your caption in the comments section below.
Remember, a good caption tells the story of the photograph in 20-30 words (give or take). Feel free to be creative and have some fun with your words!
Your deadline: April 15. Remember, when it comes to a great caption, every word counts.

A spring rainbow climbs out of the Grand Canyon into the clouds of a clearing afternoon storm.
The extensive palette of the Grand Canyon is further enhanced by a rainbow
Look beyond the beauty and your wishes may come true in the end.
A spectacular spectrum seems to ascend from the perennial canyon, as though the depths of the chasm were its origin.
Proof that there really is gold at the end of a rainbow.
If you could close your eyes and visualize a place where colors of the earth and sky compliment each other in spectacular panoramic views, this might be what your vision would look like.
In Arizona where beauty meets beautiful !!
Feeling the luck of the Irish, we’ve found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The beautiful Grand Canyon on a cloudy day with the gorgeous blue sky peaking through and a fabulous colorful rainbow, couldn’t get better then that.
The real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The palette of color that spills from the sky, at this exact moment in time, nourishes our eyes, tempts our understanding, and invites curious appreciation, but look again…stop…and linger….for, in truth, it is the omniscient silence that speaks.
Candy Cane Colors add spectacular colors to an already spectacular view of the Grand Canyon.
From the Great Abyss rises the promise of a clearing sky
There truly is ‘gold’ at the end of a rainbow
The sun citrus kissed rocks of the canyon glowing with springs new beginnings awaken with life as the distant rain clouds heavy with the coming storm form a spectrum bridge of light to lead the rain home and nourish the desert back to life once more.
The beauty that God built…
Arizona…the pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow!
Each cloud a moment make,
Each rainbow a memory in time,
Each canyon hue an inspiration in glory.
For me the best caption is Jake’s own words of awe and wonderment “I survived my first backpacking trip in the Canyon” 🙂 sorry if I embarrassed you Jake (no not really). I think Jake actually meant “enjoyed” but had survived and enjoyed mixed up.
The gold at the bottom of this aspiring rainbow is fluid and blue…….water …..the life force that made the canyon and fuels its inhabitants, plant and animal alike.
