Observed Friday June 30, 2013

7720 feet of elevation in Jack Main Canyon below Wilmer Lake

Hiking from Wilmer Lake continuing down the magnificant Lower Jack Main Canyon to Hetchy Hetchy when this little guy started me off on the best run across wet Spring trails through endless butterflies of every color, size, shapes, and descriptions.
