Travel to Morelia

Seeing all those Monarch butterflies will be something you will never forget it gets me excited just thinking back to our trip there.

As we approached the monarch overwintering site, our guide told us to be quiet so we wouldn't disturb them. All we could hear was the flapping of wings as the sun warmed them and they took flight. We were in their world and it was like entering a holy place.

For me, the emotional impact of that moment was overwhelming and almost physical. I'm not a weepy person but I burst into tears at the sheer beauty of those delicate, determined little creatures who travel 3,000 miles, year after year, to that exact spot.
