Yellowstone Milbert's Tortoiseshell Butterfly

We did manage to find a couple of butterflies in Yellowstone. We were up at the tower gift shop on Monday, it was pretty warm that day, and we spotted 4 or 5 Milbert's tortoiseshell butterflies fluttering around between the dandelions.
A couple day later most of Yellowstone, including Tower Falls, got a couple of days of snow. I wonder if the butterflies have a way of dealing with the weather fluctuations or if it was their time.
