Mountain Transitions by Jim Connor

Ester Wheatley of Hopkins, Michigan, shows off her milkweed plant. The plant attracts monarch butterflies that lay eggs on it and the caterpillars eat it. She is quite protective of both the plant and the large butterflies. Ester, 90, is the photographer’s aunt. Jim Connor photos

Mountain Transitions by Jim Connor

Monarch in the clover. Although monarch butterflies had failed to materialize in numbers by the end of June this year, this specimen was seen in Michigan a few years ago. The milkweed crop is exceptional in some wheat fields. Thickened black spots on the inner veins of the hind wings suffice to identify the butterfly as a male. Jim Connor photos

Good Old Days of Custer County

Tourists galore — Approximately 20 people participated in only the second official public tour of the ghost town of Bayhorse since 1949. The tour, conducted by the North Custer Historical Society and sponsored by the Challis Lions Club, also included a stop at the Buffalo Jump, where archaeologist Marion McDaniel talked about the findings of an ISU dig at the site, and at the lower Bayhorse Cemetery, where Art Packard spoke about some of the people buried there. Other speakers included Fields Bender, Roberta Green and Bill Sullivan. The historical society hopes to conduct similar tours of other ghost towns in the future.
