Peters Canyon

I went on a hike today with a friend. We hiked Peters Canyon (not much of a canyon, but hills aplenty. It was very nice, sun shining but some clouds and a fairly strong breeze blowing. Not many birds as the hike was from 2-5ish, not the birdiest time of day, but we did see bluebirds, towhees, goldfinches, and a vulture quite close, and heard gnatcatchers and COYEs all over. Took a photo of what I thought was a West Coast Lady, got it home and looked at it and realized it was an American Lady, a new butterfly for me. If I did it this time I'm sure I've misidentified them in the past.

It's not stinking gourd, it smells like peanut butter when you rub the leaves.
