We went to Boston, on Saturday, January 12, 2019, for the last day of ‘Durgin Park‘. But, given we are members (of long-standing) of the ‘Museum of Science‘ it would have been crazy not to spend some time there as well. And that is exactly what we did, and as ever it was worthwhile and rewarding. Plus, as members we get discounted parking; $22 for 9-hours (which by Boston standards is not too bad).

I took more pictures — many more. But, just wanted to share a few with you. Enjoy.

Diorama Of The Canyon de Chelly ‘White House’ Ruins At Boston’s ‘Museum of Science’.

I am not sure whether this is a new exhibit or whether it never fully registered with me previously. We go to the ‘Museum of Science‘ at least thrice a year, and have done for years and years. So, not much I haven’t seen.

But, I saw this yesterday. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Reading the accompanying sign only confirmed what I knew.

Neat. But, I am not 100% happy with the depiction. They seemed to have it garbled. It was unlikely to have been a ruin, in such disrepair, when folks were still living there! So, don’t call it ‘the ruins’ and show people still climbing it with ladders.

Also doesn’t explain why it is called the ‘White House‘. Yes, you can just about see the white building at the back. They believe it was painted white to reflect heat.


Well I have a LOT of posts on this blog about this ‘White House‘.

So, if you are interested just do a search on ‘White House Canyon‘.

Composition In Snow.

They say that the eskimos have 50 different words to describe snow. I can understand that.

There is snow and then there is snow.

Yesterday we got some heavy, wet, clingy snow. It stuck to the trees and stayed put. I woke up to a landscape of white. With all the trees it was very pretty.

Soon with sun and wind the trees will shed some of this snow. I just wanted to capture the snow at its height.
