The Pyramids and Atlantean figures at Tula

tula

Today we traveled south east to Tula—Toltec archeological site.  Along the way we counted many monarchs. We began to encounter them just outside of San Miguel de Allende and continuously as we drove sout on 57 toward Queretaro.  Most were crossing the highway going northeast.  It was late morning and just warming up.  We guessed that it was primarily nectaring activity as there were many flowers on both sides of the highway. 

 

We continued down to the outer reaches of Mexico city to see Tula.

We have continued on and are spending the night at the hotel Villas Archeologicas at Teotihuacan.  We hope to see some of that site in the morning before heading to Tuxpan and Quinta Mitzi as we approach the overwintering area and monarch reserves.

    Looks like a good time. I went and did the voting thing today, so here’s some fingers crossed for good news when you come back north.

    I’m sure you’ve heard by now…but sanity and reason won the day yesterday! Obama is our next president. 🙂 I tried to call last night so you could join in the celebration but the phone company wouldn’t put me through. (Are you able to check your e-mail in Mexico?)
