This is the new train ride at the California Living Museum-only $1.00 for a ride! So of course, we had to go on the train.
Not much in the way of scenery, but this is where I would like to live-a big ass house on the banks of the Kern River. I don't know where all this water goes, but by the time you get back into the city the river is just a big dry riverbed.
The mountains out here are really pretty but with no rain for months they are just brown as far as you can see.
A mule deer-they are native to just the coastal mountains in California. I guess they call them mule deers because of their very large ears?
A bobcat-just a little bigger than our house kitties. This one saw Keith further down the fence, ran down there and then turned around and tried to spray him!
Bear hugs.
The almost extinct parking meter species.
And the roadrunner-BEEP BEEP! There was one roadrunner inside the turtle exhibit (no turtles that we could see) and this roadrunner that was outside was kind of like taunting the inside roadrunner. The inside roadrunner was having a fit and jumping up against the cage.

There is an exhibit for coyotes but they must have been hiding from the heat (or maybe the roadrunners got them) because we couldn't see them.

So, the California Living Museum is a fun way to spend a few hours of what otherwise would have been a pretty dull Sunday.

At least it was something to do! I bet your son would be impressed you rode the train...
