SBA – PHX – DEN but first Butterflies!

Home for the holidays as they say. We are meeting family in the middle of the country – my former stomping grounds, Colorado. Before heading on a late flight, I took a walk to see how the butterfly grove is doing.

It was a Monday, so the people traffic was low and it was chilly, so the flying butterflies were few but the resting butterflies were amazing!

Wow, totally wow. Followed by a brisk walk by the coastline …
