Brant Reif

Rabbit Ears Pass, Routt National Forest
Grand County, CO

Just looked around in the meadow north of the highway and west of the pass. I hadn’t been to this location in a few years and a good chunk of the meadow has been paved over for a winter parking spot for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. The Atlantis Fritillary was of the hesperis variety as I’ve seen the darker disked variety just south of the pass in the meadows of the Sarvis Wilderness where they both fly.
