  • The exqnsion shuld incude a better musum with udate informmation and google maps for local attractions in the desert
  • This is a great little museum and shop. Lots of good things for your grand-kids and you, too. They have tours and info about the region, some really nice-looking jewelery (my wife bought a nice necklace -- for her birthday!), and the museum displays are interesting. One of the best museums and shops I've seen in the West -- better than even the Nat'l Park Service in Death Valley or elsewhere. I plan to go back for their Little Petroglyph Canyon tour in the Fall.
