Clear Creek Vista Trail in Whiskeytown NRA
Shasta County, CA

Chris Gray and I saw a Western Pine Elfin on the Clear Creek Vista Trail yesterday afternoon at the end of a plant walk with CNPS. The butterfly was patrolling the path, then landing on an interior live oak. It did this repeatedly. Then it danced above the tree with a second elfin. A gray pine was right next to this display area. It was a very fresh pine elfin.
