A good year for the paints!

The Indian Paintbrush has long been a favorite of mine and I have been delighted this year to see them more beautiful than I’ve ever seen them before. These are growing along the Forest Service road that provides access to the northern part of the Patrick’s Knob roadless area in western Montana’s Coeur d’Alene Mountains.

  2. Right now they are larger than usual and it’s fairly rare to see so many together, at least in this area. I’ve sure been enjoying them!

  6. They must have liked the cold, wet spring we had this year or maybe the heavy snow at that elevation. While Montana is very dry now at lower elevations, it’s still not too bad above 5,000 feet, where these are.
