The Monarch is famous for its southward migration and northward return in summer from Canada to Mexico and Baja California which spans the life of three to four generations of the butterfly. (Wikipedia).
John Steinbeck has a chapter in Sweet Thursday (one of my top three favorite novels) about the Monarchs returning to Monterrey, CA.
