Monarchs' Sanctuary at Macheros
There were few butterflies.
The monarch's sanctuary hasn't been a great success. I visited the sanctuary during the butterfly high season, but by some misfortunes, I didn't see as many butterflies as I was hoping. It was probably a combination of bad luck, coolish temperature, a partially clouded sky, and high expectations. Lucky people can see thousands of butterflies.
The trees are covered with butterflies.
The trail leading to the butterflies at around 3000 metres in altitude.
Mountainous region in the state of Querétaro.
