Ogden, Utah...again

Treehouse Children's Museum has created a new exhibit incorporating a mural I painted for them last winter. Old MacDonald's Woodshop is attached to the big red barn. In the barn is a milkable cow and animatronic sheep and rooster.

Miss Bindergarten and I visited Ogden in November and met 1000s of schoolchildren in area schools. I had a chance to see the new exhibit and take some shots of Miss B exploring the entire museum.

My gracious hosts, Lynne and Michael Goodwin, took me on some fun excursions. One to a Navajo Rug Show in Park City. I was thrilled to buy this Eye Dazzler pattern rug made by weaver Sandy Benale, a 12 year old, 6th grader.

We had a brief visit with Franz, the Park City bear and checked out the skiing possibilities. Not happening yet!
Later we drove out into the Great Salt Lake to Antelope Island. The bison were grazing in the late afternoon light and the Wasatch Range was glowing purple.
