The first snow of the 18-19 winter! We noticed it was snowing a bit on a Monday evening, the 4th, and the next morning we woke up to a coating of white. I had a morning appointment that was canceled, so Nat and I went for a longer walk to take pictures. It was so beautiful out. And it hasn’t snowed since! Not here on the west side, anyway. We might get snow again early next week, but likely not. I’m pretty okay with one snow per winter, honestly.

I am 100% obsessed with the Cannon Beach bunnies. On this day we went to the coast specifically took look for them; we barely even walked on the beach (to be fair, it was cold and windy and both of the times we went out walking it hailed – hard!). On the drive home we saw snow in the coastal range – the first snow of the winter. We ended up getting our first snow at home the next day. Those photos coming up shortly.

After the raptor center, we drove the five miles north back to Eugene, to the Museum of Natural and Cultural History on the University of Oregon campus. It is apparently the largest natural history museum between Seattle and San Francisco, and home to the famous Fort Rock sandals, among the oldest shoes in the world (~10,000 years). I don’t think anything will come close to replicating the relationship I had with the KU Natural History Museum while I was living in Lawrence. But because natural history museums don’t necessarily abound in the Northwest, I’m happy to know about and to finally have been to this one. Eugene is pretty great!
