Sighting for August 10, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Cement Creek Road (Co Rd 740) Meadow at Farris Creek Trailhead just above a horse pasture. From Gunnison it is just before the housing developments in Crested Butte on the East of Hwy 135.
Gunnison County, CO

We found 1 Spaulding’s Blue on the only 1 host plant we could see in the meadow at this location in 2015 (1 month earlier). We also had Widenmeyer’s Admiral at this location in late June of 2015. The Common Branded and Juba Skippers today were lifers!
