We took the long way to the museum, driving around Tucson to give me an idea of what was around. We stopped at the top of a mountain (can’t remember the name). At the top of it was this giant A. Back in the early 1900s, students of U of A created this with white washed rocks. Today, when U of A’s rival comes to play they paint the Giant A.
At the Desert Museum, I saw scorpions, a hela monster (though he was hiding so I only saw his tail), a fox, a mountain lion, a couple a wolves, a dear, plenty of cacti and one havelina. The havelina looks likes pig, or wart hog, but is as closely related to a pig as we are to chimpanzees (which isn’t very close). I also learned how to spot the scorpion that likes to frequent the indoors – buy a black light. They glow! Which is cool, but I still don’t want to see one indoors, ever. Here are some pics.
