Pics from our trip up to the Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove.
We went in January, before the butterflies migrated off elsewhere. Beautiful trip, beautiful day. It was about a 20 minute walk from the parking lot to the grove where hundreds of butterflies were clustered on tree branches, and when the sun came out and hit the clusters, they fluttered around. The grove itself is a scenic hike and near the ocean, although we didn’t have time to make it to the ocean for a walk. After that, we headed south to Santa Barbara for the evening.
