Mark Adams anti spent some time after the AAAS meeting in San Jose to explore for early butterflies in the South Bay. We were disappointed that Alum Rock was closed on Mondays, and with it our best hope for Sonoran Blues. But we did manage a good mix of species at Sunol Regional Wilderness under clear skies and temps in upper 70s.
