Hwy 20 from Bend, OR to Millican. Turn at old store on dirt road to Pine Mtn. Observatory. We found the Shasta Blue on the West side of the dirt road in the high altitude mountain desert which was in full bloom with ‘Cushion Flowers’. It was quite cool & cloudy when we arrived at 8:40. There were a couple of rainshowers sending us back to the truck before we saw 1 Shasta Blue at the base of a Sagebrush Plant at 10:10. We saw the others butterflies prior to that. The Dotted Blue was a Pacific Dotted Blue.
