Natural Bridges State Park

While Amy's brother Mike was in town, we took the family to Natural Bridges State Park. This place is named for three bridge-like rock formations, only one of which still exists. It's also famous for the thousands of Monarch butterflies that spend the winter there, but we had to look long and hard to see just a few butterflies. Despite the slightly misleading marketing, we had a lovely time enjoying the beach and hiking some trails. Anyway, the children were more interested in sword fighting with sticks and honing their acrobatic skills on the beach than in butterfly watching.



  • Boo! When we were there at Thanksgiving the guides were telling us the butterfly migration lasted through the end of January! I can't believe its just petered out like that. So weird.
