Monarch adventure day 2

We awoke in Angangaro to a beautiful sunny and warmer day. My dear friend Ivonne saw how disappointed I was the day before after climbing up a mountain at altitude to see clumps of brown on the trees. She directed us to another butterfly reserve. After another 45 min hike up we arrived to see a sight so amazing pictures can not do it justice.

Here are the kids "watching" our bikes for us. They are the same ones who killed Cliff's battery.
