Thanks for looking in and unconfirming my wrong identification of a scotch argus especially since I was so far out of it's range. At least now I think I would recognise one without a book.

Loved the trek and all the great photos. Some of them could have been made right around here, especially the one with the high tension lines passing over the picnic table. There is a near identical spot in the southern part of our county.
