Location: On the Red Cedar State Bike Trail between County Y and Downsville
Dunn County

There were tons of butterflies along the bike trail today. We spotted several Monarchs, Cabbage Whites, Great Spangled Fritillaries, Northern Pearly-eyes and too many Red Admirals to count! We even had a couple Admirals land on us while we biked. I almost felt like we were in a butterfly house. Didn't take many pictures as the deer flies and mosquitoes were wicked when we stopped biking.
