FRISCO — A few summer scenes in pictures that don’t really need a lot of words. Despite a summer-long drought, we enjoyed some stunning days and escaped the worst of the wildfire season with a strong surge of monsoon moisture in July that also helped spur a decent wildflower season. On top of that, there was a solar eclipse early in the season, along with a lunar eclipse. All in all, not a bad summer!

The summer of 2012 brought numerous wildfires, and even though Summit County was unscathed, smoke from distant blazes filled the air for days at a time.
