Well, maybe better late than never…

After one of my last hikes of last summer into the Patrick’s Knob Roadless area on the top part os USFS trail 205 and the east end of USFS trail 404 I put these photos into a pending file and forgot them. It might be interesting to note that these plants are presently resting under about eight feet of snow.

Wildflowers of summer (11)

As summer draws to a close, blooms of the wildflowers have almost completed; I have only a few more photos of this year’s blooms left to post.

For the next couple of weeks my posting will likely be sporadic and/or brief. Our daughter will be here for a visit and we have a lot of plans, many of which involve trekking into the beautiful back country of Montana. I’m sure there will be many photos to be posted later as a result of those trips, perhaps including some new blooms.
