Sighting for July 3, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Oregon Caves National Monument
Josephine County, OR

For the Golden Hairstreak: From Oregon Junction we went toward Oregon Caves NM & took a Forest Road off to the right at 13 miles (it was another 6 miles to the Oregon Caves NM Visitor Center, there was a sign where we turned with that mileage). We took the Fire Evacuation Route from the Visitor Center Parking Lot for the other butterflies. It took 3.5 hours to butterfly the Fire Evacuation Route from Oregon Caves NM.
