Summer began with the end of the pandemic in sight — but then the delta variant forced even the vaccinated to don masks, at least indoors.
Many of us ventured outside, cameras and smartphones in hand, to capture the beauty around us — from the Cascade Range to the backyard garden.
As summer enters its final weeks, here is a selection of our favorite photos from Herald readers.
