This week afforded me the opportunity to visit an area to which I have not been. It has be on my, long ago made, list of day trip places to explore. Unknowingly, and to my luck, I arrived on the day of the migration of the monarch butterfly. Imagine my delight when we ventured out on the trails to see flowers, trees and bushes covered with 1000s of nectar drinking beauties. I later read, in fact, over 100,000 butterflies had stopped to eat and rest before making the long journey to South America. Rest assure, I have marked my calendar, as I will not miss magical moment next year.
