Event: Monarch PEAK Migration Duration: 04 hours 00 minutes Number: 729
Date of Sighting: 10/20/2013 Latitude: 29.2300 Longitude: -99.8200
Town: Uvalde State/Province: TX Country:
During a three-hour trip, we counted 729 monarchs while driving on the highway from San Antonia to Del Rio (150 miles). Time:  9:30 am- 12:00 pm. Then there were hundreds along San Felipe Creek.  On the way home we saw fewer than 20!  It was a glorious monarch trip! I hope this report will "gladden the hearts" of all those who are so worried about the monarchs. I know so many are sad. (Of course this is just a small number considering the whole loss in numbers that they feel.)

Editor's Note: The location used for this highway trip report is Uvalde, Texas, mid-way between San Antonio and Del Rio.
