Archeology Days at Mastodon Park

The kids always love going to Mastodon Park. It’s  not very big but they love the two small museums and hiking the trails, especially the one that goes down to the bone bed.  Every year Mastodon has their archeology days which includes free admission to the museums and other activities related to archeology

Mac told me that the picture he was drawing was of me which I thought was sweet, until he added that I had chicken pox — oh well, so much for the sweet part 🙂
