Sighting for August 6, 2020

Brant Reif

NE side of the Green River Lakes, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wind River Range
Sublette County, WY

The list includes all I saw from the trailhead at 8,000 feet up to the plateau at Osborn Mountain (11,500 feet). I had to use an Elk trail to get to the top of the mountain as there is no designated hiking trail, but I was rewarded by seeing a herd of Elk, and a large population of Mountain Fritillaries. An incoming storm chased me off of the top of the mountain before I could get photos of the species at the top.
