Summer Days

While spending time ogling the wildflower patches in front of us we almost forgot to turn around and breathe in the pure cloudless sky and wonderful mountain ridge behind us.

An evening storm passes by bringing thunder but no rain on the mountain peak just across the way.

A classic summer cumulus just seemed to hang over this rock formation from early afternoon until evening.

The setting sun still shining out the mountains ever so close but still far away.

Summer days seem so few.

Wild Iris

In fields wet with moisture the wild iris are blooming like crazy this year. It is amazing how some years there are so few but when it rains more than usual they explode. They bloom for a few days then dry up and quickly disappear. Nature playing hide and seek.
