there were many Monarchs feeding on the flowers on the side of the road leading up to Mount Mitchell, it was a wonderful sight
The Monarchs we saw were feeding in the daisies just off the road at a scenic pull-in. They were spread out over about 7 car lengths of space, I watched them for about 15 minutes before being dragged away!
As far as my estimate goes, I was amusing myself trying to count the fluttering beauties, and that was about what I came up with although it may not be accurate.
It was early afternoon around 1.30-2.00, the sun was shining and the clouds were just beginning to move back over the mountain after a couple of rainy days.
