TUCSON WILDLIFE MUSEUM

I have been to a lot of museums in my life, but this is one of the best.  Just look at this display of some exotic feathered friends.  Outstanding!
 Isn't this bird awesome?  Almost unreal!
The room with our antlered friends was breathtaking. 
Every imaginable deer, elk, moose, caribou etc was there.  And a couple of bear, too. 
This elephant was huge, and I don't see how they could hang it on the wall like that!
Beautiful cats, especially this tiger.
Most of three sides are shown here.
And then the dioramas were out of this world.  They were clean, perfectly displayed, and very beautiful.
Love musk ox!
This otter looks like he lives in Seldovia where our son lives!
This was one outstanding museum!  Go if you ever get the chance!

I'm so glad to see that you're feeling better and out taking pictures again!
I especially love the header with all the different elevations. That museum does look like a good place to visit. The tiger looks so real!

That's a great place. We've been meaning to get to Tuscon to visit friends, and that's just one more reason to go! I'm so ready for some springtime.....

Wow Marge! Those bird pictures are beautiful!!! I read your next post, and I hope you get to a better place to download your beautiful pictures. I love traveling along with you on these road trips. I don't get to travel very often. It would be so fun to do a little of it I'm sure! Hope you enjoy every moment.

Hi again Marge! Yes, I have been following you for a long time. Just riding along in my dreams~ :)

I'm so glad you found my blog! PLEASE come and visit as often as you want. I hope to start blogging a little more often, especially as Spring comes. I'm getting over my funk I've been in. Tomorrow we are going back over to MIL's nursing home to take some pictures of her angels she has been working on. We went tonight, and I had forgotten my camera, which is actually an old cell phone. Anyways, she is very creative, and I'll post about her angels. Hope you enjoy that.

Take care and enjoy your road trip! God's Blessings on you and your hubby!

I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD
