Rogue River at Graves Creek Bridge
Josephine County, OR

I counted butterflies on the trails at the Grave Creek Bridge, followed by driving along Grave Creek Road. This locale is 22 miles northwest of Grants Pass. Temperatures started at 51 degrees and hit 70 degrees at 2:30. Lots of butterfly activity mud-puddling at the rivers edge.
