Natural wonders just seem to light us up, cause us to marvel, and feed our souls. Often, when we think of natural wonders, we tend to think of stationery things that have formed over time, like rock formations, waterfalls, sand dunes, caves, and canyons. But the natural world has other wonders, too, that move, that come and go with the seasons. In the west, one of these wonders is the annual Monarch butterfly migration. Though you would never guess it from outside the park, an excellent place to see these butterflies in Southern California is a small Eucalyptus grove located in Santa Barbara Shores Park.
