While smokey skies obscure mountain top views, as shown in Keith Hammer's lead photo . . .
. . . Pam Willison encountered hail while picking huckleberries!
Pam also found wetlands that continue to produce Broadleaf arrowhead . . .
. . . and really huge conks on Cottonwood trees!
Ruth Quist found comfort along the Missouri River, along with beaver . . .
. . . and pelicans!
Keith came across Anemone seeds being shed . . .
. . . and a chipmunk praying for lots of seeds to eat!
Jan Lord sent in proof she needn't even leave her driveway to see wildlife, as did . . .
. . . Debra Schweitzer, who later reported "three sets of twins and two single fawns running around in the field in front of me. That’s my nightly entertainment."
Last but not least, Norma Linsky sent in this photo of "streamside flowers holding on to summer."
