Endless Butterflies
Hiking South of the Lake Vernon trail junction backpacking down Jack Main Canyon in the Northwest Yosemite backcountry I first came upon the temperate zone of lush vegetation supporting a splendid length of trail filled with endless butterflies.

I should have lingered longer, and taken more shots than this "drive-by" video, but the temps were in the low ninties and the mosquitoes were thicker than the butterflies, which drove me through quickly.

The video was taken on June 30 2013 at about 6800 feet of elevation.
