We rode horses (again!) and went up and down the mountains until we came to a small canyon with a stream running through the bottom. Here, the Monarchs floated by in even greater numbers than yesterday!
It was overwhelming! We climbed up a steep mountainside and found trees heavily laden with cluster upon cluster of the beautiful orange travelers.
They have been here all winter, resting and waiting for spring to lay eggs and complete their life cycle. We found them at 8200 feet above sea level.
Do you know how many feet above sea level Purcellville is? Adios, mi amigos!
