I believe I have found a double swallowtail chrysalis. I had to move it from where it was partially buried in the ground and under a stack of bricks. Where can I put it so that it will winter well? We live in the high desert in Grand Junction, CO, so we’re still watering the garden.

Dear Em,
Were there tomatoes planted near the collection site?  This is the pupa of a solanaceous eating Sphinx Moth in the genus
Manduca.
