Lucy Merrill-Hills

Silt Island Park, Silt
Garfield County, CO

This was my first visit to this location. The Colorado River runs along one side of the park, which has many trails through wooded grassy areas, as well as along the river, a marsh and a creek. I saw many dragonflies and birds, plus two lizards, but only five butterflies, two of which were close enough to identify. Sunny, low 70’s, no wind, 11:10-12:30.
