Special to the DailyLynzie Flynn of Silverthorne sends in this nice shot of a rainbow over Dillon Reservoir. 'A beatiful ending to an otherwise gray day,' she writes.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the worlds only daily column that has the countys search-and-rescue team out and about looking for the owner of a missing parakeet-type bird. The bird, pictured somewhere on this page, was recently discovered by Friscos own Don Buckalew.A parakeet is a term for any one of a large number of unrelated small to medium-sized parrot species, that generally have long-tail feathers.Parakeets as pets: Aparakeet is perhaps the best type of bird to have as a pet. Parakeets and/or similar birds are inexpensive, easy to care for and last but not least, entertaining. They provide hours of amusement with their lively chatter, playfulness, precociousness and curiosity. Theyre perfect for just about everyone, from families with children to single people living in a cramped city apartment. Since keets are not quite as frail and delicate as many other types of pet birds, they can live anywhere from five to 10 years if they are well-cared for.A beautiful rainbow, also shown somewhere on this page is the next topic of conversation.Rainbows are optical illusions and meteorological phenomena that cause a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earths atmosphere. They take the form of a multicolored arc.***Its Monday, and were out chasing rainbows, collecting them and saving them for a rainy day.
