Sighting for August 6, 2019

Brant Reif

Bears Ears Trail, Shosone National Forest, Popo Agie Wilderness, Wind River Range
Fremont County, WY

This list includes all that I spotted from where the Moccasin Lake Road turns to gravel all the way to the north side of Mt Chauvenet along the Bears Ears Trail. I spent four days backpacking with my 10-year old from the 5th through the 8th. The butterfly highlights were several Dingy Fritillaries and a lone Mountain Fritillary near Mt. Chauvenet. Six Boloria on one trail was mighty impressive as well!
