The railroad tracks are located near Olympia Washington and at first, you might think that the painted railroad tracks were in honor of Pride month but according to the Historical Society in an article from the Olympian, no one really knows why the railroad tracks were painted like a rainbow.

I do know that it's a pretty amazing sight.

A Tumblr post gives directions to where you can visit the Rainbow Rails if you are headed that way this summer.

From Downtown walk along 5th Ave. When you reach the point where 5th Ave and Deschutes Parkway meet follow Deschutes Parkway. Shortly after there will be a crosswalk that takes you to a path connecting Deschutes Pkwy and the 5th Ave Bridge. Cross there and near the bus stop is a path that leads under the bridges

The track is abandoned and located near downtown Olympia so it should be easy to find with directions.
