Looking at my World from a Different Place

A Trip on the Wild Side


I love my local natural history museum, and I visited yesterday to see some of its newly remodeled areas.  I overheard a docent say that natural history museums are an intersection of nature and culture.  I can’t argue with that, but the main reason I go is because they are kick-butt cool.

Here are some of the images I captured…er, rather, that captured me.   I may use one or two as a story prompt.

  1. Amazing diversity, Lori, I don’t think we have a place quite like this, and no wonder you find it fascinating, and easy to see how stories would flow from going there!

  2. Love visiting museums – our last visit was to the Queensland Museum in South Bank, Brisbane, which is so much fun because it has hands on experiments to play with.
