~It was amazing! Monarchs everywhere...
I counted ten before I would lose count,
they were fluttering about , mingling with the
Bee's & other insects enjoying the goldenrod.
~In all the world no butterflies migrate like the
Monarchs of North America. They travel up to
three-thousand miles twice a year; South in
the fall and North in the spring. To avoid the
long ,cold Northern winters, Monarchs west of
the rockies fly south to the mountain forests of
Mexico. Unlike migrating birds & whales, how-
ever individual Monarchs only make the round-
trip once. It is the great-grandchildren that
return South the following fall.
