Sighting for July 27, 2021

Brant Reif

Between Jasper and Albino Lakes, Beartooth Plateau, Gallatin National Forest
Carbon County, MT

This is the full sightings list from a four day backpacking trip. I couldn’t keep track of numbers except for those species of which I only encountered a few specimens. The trail starts off of the Beartooth Highway in Wyoming. The only species that I found on the Wyoming side of the trail that wasn’t found in Montana was the Mariposa Copper.
