John and Nancy Crosby

Moon Prairie Road
Jackson County, OR

I-5 Medford to Ashland Exit 14. Turn E on Dead Indian Hwy. Go 3.4 miles past Lily Glen Equestrian Park on Moon Prairie Rd. The last 1/4 mile requires high clearance due to huge boulders. Just past the Mardon Exclosure the road became wet & impassable even in 4 x 4. There were at least 100 Fritillaries! The Variable Checkerspot was Snowberry.
