Denver Museum of Nature & Science

We visited the Denver Museum of Nature & Science today while Nana attended an all-day quilting event. Seemed like a good option for a threatening-weather day and Sam's last full day here this trip. Almost got through all the museum, probably still 1-2 hours to go, mostly in the science areas. All the photos are here. Took us quite a bit longer than normal to get home. We were re-routed to highway 83 (must have been something bad on I-25) and then heavier snow the closer we got to home.

The bigs thought this virtual reality ride was pretty cool.

Quite a discussion ensued about what would happen if elephants had such tusks today.

Matt determined the mummy was just a little taller than Lexi.

The water "whirl wind" was very exciting.

There was practically no snow on anything when we arrived.

Fina's trying desperately to ignore it all.

They had some remarkable rhodochrosite specimens.

Quartz, too.
