In your location Aphrodite and Great Spangled Fritillary are both possible.

 
Perhaps S. zerene
The gray eyes and pattern rule out both S. cybele and S. aphrodite. It is not S. mormonia. The remaining species are difficult, especially from just the upper side; however, the pattern resembles S. zerene most to my eyes. I would not rule out a few of the other species though. Hopefully other people here are more familiar with Washington Fritillaries.

 
Great Basin
I agree that it's not cybele, aphrodite, or mormonia, but I don't believe it's zerene either. I believe that this specimen is a Speyeria egleis. The pattern and saturation match very well, and they are known in eastern Washington, particularly in the counties adjacent to Stevens County; Ferry County to the West and Spokane county to the Southeast.
