Visiting the Desert Museum - Bend, Oregon

We visited the museum where Grandma Freya does volunteer work, with the birds of prey, specifically.



Grandma Freya reads to a group of preschoolers & then introduces William, who is a screech owl who lives at the Desert Museum.

Huh, no monster in this one. Let's check another...

the exhibits include: caves, mines, Native America heritage, archeology, animals of the desert & other Oregon historical stories from many eras

Pineneedles... hm, interesting to walk on

A path! Ah, this is faster: now to outpace mom, somehow.

Summer Tent Style

Winter Tent Style

Alli, Athena & Aurora pose in front of the cool "tepee"(sp?) - hard for the girls to sit still for a second!

Ferugenus Hawk, posing nicely. "streeetttch , ah, how's that angle?" He is sure beautiful!

Some Alders(white barked trees with pink "shoots")& Dogwood(red bark bushes) growing elegantly alongside a stream


These horses had _serious_ muscles: wow. They were brought in from the wild herds in Oregon, because they have to control the population by catching & selling horses occasionally: the Museum helps ensure they get to homes instead of killed: the musuem spends hundreds of hours each year training 2 wild horses so they can be owned.





Aurora loved this horse sculpture: made from grasses or reeds of some form.
