Juvenal's Duskywing based on the amount of gray scaling on the upperwings. We did not see the underwings to confirm the two hindwing spots.
Hoary Puccoon! (Lithospermum canescens) What a sunshine little plant. Love it!
Beth and me working on plant ID.
We ate our picnic lunch in this special place - a glade.
This shrub, Fragrant Sumac (Rhus aromatica), was absolutely humming with pollinators!
Who isn't happy exploring a beautiful, rocky stream?
This spring azure loved the salts on my skin and I loved seeing this sign of spring.
Beth - always the artist and good Land Steward decided we needed a cairn to make the trail stream crossing more clear.
We enjoyed such a great spring outing and can't wait for our next visit! We hope you all are getting out too...
