We went to several locations hoping to see some spring butterflies. We were a little disappointed because of some habitat management that was done in one of our favorite Frosted Elfin sites.

Weather was off and on-it started out mostly sunny, 54°, 14mph winds. It changed almost every hour. It would be sunny, then cloudy, then sunny and we ended the day with mostly cloudy, 70°, 14-17mph wind.
