Rocky meadow northeast of Haney Meadow, perfect habitat for fritillaries, sulphurs and parnassians.
Moist meadows along the forest road between Haney Meadow (north) and Reecer Creek Canyon (south).
This area was part of the Table Mountain Fire a few years ago. This spot is good for a variety of butterflies,
especially Mormon Fritillaries (Speyeria mormonia).
