Every autumn monarch butterflies make astonishing migrations: Those born west of the Rocky Mountains typically make their way to the Pacific Coast. But the butterflies born east of the Rocky Mountains do the truly unimaginable; starting as far north as Canada, they fly thousands of miles to Mexico. Memory is not their guide - no one butterfly makes the round-trip - but each year millions find their way to the same fifty forested acres in Mexico's Neovolcanic Mountains.
