Yesterday a friend and I explored some areas around Siouxon Creek, Calamity Peak Rd., and Canyon Creek in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.  I wasn't able to photograph any of the butterflies, but here is a list of what we saw:
Clodius Parnassian (100+) - Parnassius clodius
Western Tiger Swallowtail (2) - Papilio rutulus
Pale Tiger Swallowtail (3) - Papilio eurymedon
Margined White (2) - Pieris marginalis
Western Sulphur (1) - Colias occidentalis
Silvery Blue (10+ males, 1 female) - Glaucopsyche lygdamus
Hydaspe Fritillary (1) - Argynnis hydaspe
Western Meadow Fritillary (2) - Boloria epithore
Snowberry Checkerspot (10+) - Euphydryas colon
Lorquin's Admiral (20+) - Limenitis lorquini

Also saw two new flowers: globe gilia and Cascade/subalpine mariposa lily.
