Mastodon State Historic Site

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Sunday found us at the Mastodon State Historic Site. It’s a nice little park and worth stopping by if you are in the area. Upon arrival, Katie and I were placed in a dark room  by ourselves – to watch a 15-minute video concerning the site and the Pleistocene era. We may have been tempted to make out, as they say, but our adult sensibilities took over and we dutifully watched the video instead. After the video, there is a small museum to wander through which houses a mastodon skeleton and a few displays concerning the other megafauna of the era. This included this handsome piece of taxidermy   a model of the giant ground sloth.
