Sighting for March 16, 2017

Venice Kelly

Dead man's gulch, about 3 miles west of the town of Lyons
Boulder County, CO

we had to come several thousand feet down the mountain so we could see some early butterflies. Dead man’s gulch is 5,669’ elevation. very dry this year the creek wasn’t running at all, only a few pools here and there among the boulders. no flowers yet either. but we were happy to see a few butterflies chasing each other. it was about 68F and partly sunny. we were there from 11:45 am to 1:15pm.
