Ken Wilson

Roxbrough State Park, near Castle Rock
Douglas County, CO

Arrived around 2:30 PM. It has rained earlier that afternoon but now was dry & warm. Elevation is 5751 ft at this location. For the 2nd consecutive year, this location was already well into a season ending drought. Conditions seemed dryer than the previous year. Over the next 5 days I visited 2 other times. This year was my worse results at this park. I also saw a no ID fritillary.
