Helena, MT High 84 Low 54
I really don’t remember Montana having so many beautiful sunsets. We have them occasionally but this year they seem to be night after night. Normally these red skies are the result of forest fires but not this year.
These pictures were all taken on different nights.
Can’t leave out the beautiful daytime clouds either.
We’re also seeing lots of wildlife.
This guy wandered through the lot across the street from us one evening. Jim watched a doe walk through our lot but didn’t have the camera with him.
Saw this guy down on the Gulch when we were Polly and Vern. He had an ice cream cone and was the happiest squirrel ever.
We have an Osprey nest just up the road from us but I don’t have a camera that can get a good picture of the parents or babies. We are having a wonderful time watching the chicks grow up. Mom and Dad go fishing at the lake that is just down the hill. One day we had a pretty good wind and Mom or Dad caught a rather large fish to bring back to the nest. He/she had to circle the nest several times before he could get up there with dinner. No camera, of course. The little ones are flapping their wings, building up their strength so they can fly.
For a much better picture of an Osprey check out Judy's blog.
Hail out of those storm clouds
We’re done with severe storms for at least the foreseeable future. Up into the 90’s and the fire danger is on the rise.
