Cheyenne Canyon spring sightings

Wednesday I ditched work and rode my bike all afternoon, and was delighted to see these signs of spring.
* 3 Colorado Hairstreak butterflies
* 2 painted lady butterflies
* 1 unidentified lizard
* 1 bunch of open pasque flowers

At Red Rock Canyon Wednesday I saw lots of thawing dog poo. I'd rather have seen what you did.

Saw my first butterfly of the season on Saturday up at Crowe Gulch off the Pikes Peak Highway.

The Pasque flowers are out & about in Red Rocks campground north of Woodland Park.
