Monarch Butterfly by Caroline Lambert


This is a half-day trip to Natural Bridges State Park in Santa Cruz and the Monarch Butterfly sanctuary there. We'll start with the butterfly grove and nature trail, then move to the beach for the tide pools, beach scenery, and sunset. Low tide is at 1:35pm, high tide at 7:43pm, and sunset is at 5:01pm. We'll leave when the light is gone.
