Monarch Sanctuary in Michoacán

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Morelia and the monarch sanctuary in Michoacán. We stayed one night in Morelia and it’s a beautiful vibrant city.

Although there weren’t as many monarchs as last year, it was still a fantastic privilege to see one of the world’s natural wonders. All-in-all, it was a fantastic trip and here are a few of my favorite photos from our journey. Enjoy!

P.S. Thank you Connie and Sherry for another fantastic adventure!

3 Encuentro Nacional de Danza Folklória

Last night Bill and I walked up to Plaza Civica to see the Folklória dancers. This is Independence weekend in San Miguel so there were lots of people in the plaza for the show. I have to say that Folklória is one of my favorite things to watch. Last night the lighting wasn’t great, but the dancers were wonderful so I tried my best to get a few nice photos. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Guadalajara Zoo

By no means are these all the photos I got at the Guadalajara Zoo, but I wanted to get a photos posted before we head back to San Miguel tomorrow. I had no idea what to expect at the zoo, but it was really fantastic! The animals seem well cared for and the zoo itself is quite beautiful. I would highly recommend visiting the zoo in you’re ever in Guadalajara. Enjoy!

Las Bestias Danzan

Las Bestias Danzan (Dance of the Beasts) was held in the El Jardin last night. Unfortunately, they didn’t get started until late and there was no light. Oh, well, these figures are really fun to watch as they dance around the plaza. Here are a few photos from the evening. Enjoy!
