A low, spreading growth of Purshia tridentata, AKA bitterbrush or buckbrush - in the afternoon.
The Schell Creek Range - in the late afternoon, with a lot of snow on the high peaks.
I did my field camp in the Schells. I have fond memories of that range.
I hope it was a little warmer!
It was mostly nice, but it seemed that year the monsoonal afternoon thunderstorms started in June, and started in the morning. There were several days we had to stay in camp in the am until it cleared, or came back early due to deluge. When we moved up to the Snake Range, I recollect spending several long lunches in an alcove in the detachment, complete with farting dog.
