Chugach State Park, Windy Point (60.98499° N, 149.60629° W)
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny and 64° from 1:15 to 1:45pm. The wind was very strong so butterfly activity seemed unlikely but I checked some spots with wildflowers that were somewhat sheltered from the gusts. The Large Marble was clinging to a bush twig as the wind buffeted it around, but it fluttered off at my approach. The Canadian Tiger Swallowtail was flying through the aspen trees on the trail back to the car.
