The summer really does bring a mix of conditions and photos across the country. From the high heat and dry conditions in Palo Alto  in California to the flooded and rainy downpours in the East, we got it all this week. Relive the journey in our week of photos.




Byxbee parkrun hosted their 80th event on Saturday, attracting a good crowd in the hot summer of Palo Alto.
