In our lead photo, Keith Hammer went exploring east of Glacier National Park.
Ruth Quist, however, introduces us to Western meadowrue both male . . .
. . . and female!
Skip Via shows us some Blue-eyed Mary flowers.
Carol Buchan came across some Fuzzy-tongue penstemon!
Debra Schweitzer sent in our first photos of blooming Beargrass and . . .
. . . Lupine!
Keith Hammer found some Lady's slippers . . .
. . . some Pigmy bitterroot . . .
. . . and what looks to be some kind of variegated False Solomon's seal, which he promptly named "the beach-ball variety!"
Some Rangers remembered to keep an eye out for birds, as Pam Willison did, seeing these Sandhill cranes.
Pat Jaquith spied a Lazuli bunting and . . .
. . . a female Williamson's sapsucker!
In our parting shot, Keith Hammer reminds us to keep an eye out for root-digging bears when the tasty Biscuitroot we are looking for goes missing!
