Monarch Butterfly Tour, Nov. 19-21

The first time we tried to go the first part of Nov a few years back, the Reserve was closed because the butterflies were returning. We came back the following year in Jan. Funny thing, the Reserve we went to had horses to rent to the plateau and then a walk to where the butterflies were- about a 45 minute walk if you don't do the horses to the plateau from the entrance. When we got back down, Kathie was so sore for that was the first time ridding a horse and her stirrups weren't adjusted for her. You want to make sure the sun is coming out. We met people coming back very disappointed for the butterflies were not flying around. By the time we got to them, it was starting to warm up and the sun was shinning and they had started flying around. Could not believe the mass in the trees.
