Hi-Desert Nature Museum

 

IMG_4694-600pxI’m surprised it took us a year and a half to visit the Hi-Desert Nature Museum!

We checked out the first big room of dioramas and recognized a lot of the creatures from their presence on our land. We were thankful for several of the ones we haven’t had the privilege of coming across… like bobcats and mountain lions in particular.

The second room had cases of gems and minerals, live snakes and lizards, and a topographic relief map of the Morongo Basin showing the boundaries of the wilderness areas and the fault lines.

It was a fun little adventure- and the best part was identifying some creatures we didn’t know the name of until now.
