The Great Mexican Migrations
Part 1 : The Monarch Butterfly Tour
An exciting adventure to experience one of the most important and mysterious migration phenomena on our planet – the grueling and courageous migration of the Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) into central Mexico. The monarch butterfly may be the most widely recognized of all American butterflies with its distinct orange, black, and white wings. While beautiful, this coloring actually sends a warning to predators that the monarch is foul tasting and poisonous. Every year, hundreds of millions of these butterflies make an astonishing 3000 mile journey in the fall from the eastern Rockies in the U.S. to their wintering grounds in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Mexico. We will ride silently on horseback through the luxuriant woods where monarchs are decorating their favorite trees in huge, colorful clusters, and flying in clouds through the forest. This is an adventure that combines the beauty of the natural world and a great sense of wonder at the power of life that governs this magical and tiny inhabitant of our planet.
