Location: Trempealeau township: Perrot State Park
Trempealeau County

Not much butterfly activity Am or early afternoon, disappointed I decided to climb Brady's Peak late afternoon, focus on other natural things, enjoying the view, and wildflowers when: 580 feet higher I got a photo of both emperors! From the climb I lost ten Lbs, wet with sweat, exhausted I was delusional!!!Now: HOW DO I GET DOWN??? 11:30 Am - 5:30 Pm, high eighties, humid, mild winds & sunny with passing clouds
