Wintering with Butterflies

January 2008

On Bob's wishlist - a trip to the refuges in Mexico where millions of monarch butterflies gather from every place east of the Rockies into 12 or so tiny spots in the mountains of Michoacan.

None of our Spanish speaking relatives could spare time to go with us, so we had to manage on our own - a big adventure with Char's 20 words of espanol and Bob's books of instructions. Once we managed to get out of Mexico City, we had a fine time cruising through the country-side and up the mountain roads to Angangueo, from where we visited two of the sanctuaries that are open to visitors.
