Location: County Forest & Hunting Grounds
Lincoln County

Drove South this morning to Spirit Falls, Wisconsin entering the forest ground at its NW end. A fourteen mile drive through and walk, headed SE towards Merrill, Wisconsin proved to be quite fruitful compared to yesterday: One Spring Azure-marginata form & two Morning Cloaks ( New Wood rd. ). Nine Anglewings - ,four photographed and the rest declined to have picture taken, & five Infant Geometer Day Moths, of which I only could photograph three ( Camp Ave. Rd. ). Mostly sunny this day, a few clouds and fifty-eight + degrees. According to a thermometer I carry with me, in direct sun on the sandy & gravelly roads temperatures reached into the mid sixties.
