Driving loop starting at Camas Creek and ending in Bullard's Canyon
Lake County, OR

As part of the annual NABA Butterfly count in the Warner Mountains of far Northeastern California, we did a pre-count tour of the Warner’s in Oregon. There were twenty participants and all had a wonderful time and saw 56 species. This was just a warmup for tomorrows fabulous count!
Some people got a lifer, or two, and I even added Great Purple Hairstreak for Oregon, which can be a tough find.
