Sighting for July 18, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Murdock Mtn Road (Highway 150) NE of Park City, UT. This road is often called Mirrow Lake Highway.
Summit County, UT

Based on previous reports from this road we traveled from CO to check it out. The late Spring along wtih cool temperatures probably affected our results but with little flying and lots of road traffic and ‘off road’ vehicles along with few pull off’s not occupied by camping we decided to abandon our plans. There was also a lot of forest and few meadows. Some meadows had already been destroyed by off roaders. We were excited to find Rockslide Checkerspot and Relict Frit both on our target list as reported from here earlier. They were found in a tiny meadow at a picnic site closed to camping.
