For last few days the smoke from wildfires across the region (Washington mostly) has settled into our little valley. Although it is detracting from the beauty of the area, it is creating some spectacular sunsets. Last evening the sun was blood red at sunset. Very striking, but pictures didn't turn out.
Bev and I went out for a short drive and noticed lots of deer out feeding in the hour before sunset. We drove up the St. Maries River road and on the way back decided to take a count and between there and home we counted 32 deer in groups of two to six. Mostly fawns and their mamas.. Got a few pictures and here are a couple..
