Our friend D came for her annual visit from Wyoming last month.
We always have a blast while she is here. She lifts our spirits and helps us forget any worries we may have.
We try to get out a bit and see the sights.....hey, we do have a few ;)
One of which is Great Valley Museum of Natrual History
which is operated by Modesto Junior College.
My kids have been there but D and I had never been,
so off we went.
Lots of displays such as how feathers were used back in the day....
as well as horns and shells...
even butterfly wings.
Cool fossils to view
Handmade tools from what was available
Then came the exhibits!
These guys brought back memories of Alaska....
Darn Raccoon scared the bejezus out of me!
Now for the LIVE exhibits!
They actually have a pretty good variety since they are in such a small building.
But there were a couple of things I really didn't need to see since I see them every day in my house!
Ants and spiders...icky icky pukka pukka!!
Stay turned for more of our visit.....
