Finally, breaking away from the summer heat and a little rain. Yesterday these blossoms enjoyed a brief period of sun; rain is in the forecast again for tomorrow, and snow above 6,500 feet. (I shall try to be there to greet it!)

Today this blossom was added to the list of wildflowers that I had never seen before although it seems to be quite common and is found in most states.

Moth Mullein,
Verbascum blattaria

It is growing along a short trail near the top of the Red Sleep Mountain Drive on the National Bison Range in western Montana. To the north of that location you can look over the Mission Valley and into the Mission Mountain range.
