Updated: I had a plant mislabeled. See below
We’ve visited the Big Bend Picnic Area twice in the past couple of months. Though it’s a picnic site, we didn’t take a lunch with us. We were there to explore the Big Walker Mountain area.

Chris has lamented the lack of butterflies this year. He’s almost convinced they’re all hiding out here on the mountain. There are many butterflies and other insects along the dirt road by the picnic area.
The last time we visited, Chris was able to get a few good photos of butterflies, including the rare Diana fritillary.
|This is a male Diana fritillary. The female is brown with blue. (Please correct me if I’m wrong.)|
