Sighting for June 12, 2012

Rob Santry

Cline Gulch Rd and American Mine Rd near the town of French Gulch
Shasta County, CA

The whole purpose of this outing was to photograph Lindsey’s Skipper. This is a very good locale for them, especially 2.1 miles up the steep American Mine Road, which is BLM land and is gated, so unfortunately, you have to walk it. Did I say it is Steep!
