What's a vacation without butterflies?
Boring!! Nah, not really, but just missing something.
We've just returned from a week at our timeshare in Las Vegas. We don't gamble, but enjoy a show here and there and use it as base camp for other adventures. Despite a trip to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, we had not seen a single butterfly the first five days. But then we headed to Red Rock Canyon for some hiking on days six and seven. At least there I was able to get in a couple first-time sightings, Danaus gilipus and Adelpha eulalia.
I loved the canyon and we're already planning our next trip, which will include more hiking back in the trails, especially in Pine Creek and Icebox Canyon.
