Our first day was astounding here in Mexico, in the state of Michoacan. Cerro Pelon Sancutary was our first stop at 10,072 feet above sea level– to get there we has to ride horses for almost two hours up some steep steep trails!
It was a little scary for me, but I held on tight to my horse and up up up we went !!
We were richly rewarded by the sight of millions of mariposa monarcas everywhere flying around us and clinging to the Oyamel firtrees It was astonishing and humbling and filled with excitement!As you can see, I brought a flat monarch with me…. like Flat Stanley only we call her Flat Lola! Look on a map to see where Michoacan is!!! Adios mi amigos!!
