Rainbow Remainder, Missoula, Montana
Missoula, Montana, courtesy of a thunderstorm which capped a hot, hot day. We’re finally getting weather up into the 90’s F . To entonophobics (people with a tick phobia) like me, this signifies that ticks will head higher up the mountains, and fear-free hiking season begins. Call me a wuss, but if you’ve ever found one of those little bugs crawling on you - hours after you thoroughly checked! - you may understand the creepy factor.
