John and Nancy Crosby

Rock Creek Canyon Road near Red Lodge Montana at the beginning of the Beartooth Hwy.

Indra was a lifer! We have hiked many trails to find one in California and Colorado, finally we saw one puddling in water running across Rock Creek Road where it intersects with another small dirt road. The Variable Checkerspot was ‘Anicia’.
