Utah Museum of Natural History

We had the chance to go to the Museum of Natural History at the the University of Utah last month. Once a year they open up the basement so you can see everything that is either to delicate to put on display or they just don't have the room to display it. The moccasin in the picture is over a thousand years old. It was found in a cave by the Great Salt Lake. The girls also had the chance to find out what was in Owl pellets. Taylor found a rat skeleton, skull and all. Cheyanne found a vole or mouse skeleton also with a skull. It was an incredible experience. We were able to ask lot's of questions and take our time looking at everything. Cheyanne was in heaven between all the rocks and fossils. It was one family field trip we will be talking about for years to come.
