Point Woronzof Park (61.20097° N, 150.02126° W)
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny with a light breeze and 70° from 6:15 to 7pm. Conservative counts but fewer Common Ringlets than last week at this location. I was glad this evening for close views of the Mormon Fritillaries that had eluded me and my camera last week. My wife was waiting patiently for me throughout, and as we were about to get in the car she heard movement among the trees across the road. We were happy to find a porcupine there, and watched it climb a large birch tree.
