|Late July and look how green!|

What is striking about the climb is how lush and green this range is still, even though we're past mid-July when hillsides generally are scorched.
The grass and flowers were chest high (to me) in spots, the flowers abundant and greenery everywhere.
There was a high wind and the grasses and flowers swayed in the breeze.
Despite a slight overcast the visibility in the area was remarkable. We could see the Sweetgrass Hills, Little Rockies, Bear's Paw, Little Belt and Snowy mountain ranges.
