Another great thing about visiting this museum is that you can camp at Gilbert Ray Campground or Snyder Hill BLM. We spent a couple days at each but feel Gilbert Ray is definitely one of our favorite all time campgrounds; it's like camping in a desert botanical garden with near perfect sunsets almost every night.
The museum has an amazing assortment of plant and animal species. We could see animals up close in their natural surroundings, like this Coyote.
The Mexican Wolf has been hunted into extinction by ranchers here in the USA, but I think there are still a few in Mexico.
What a great place for a Cactus Wren to build their nest. What predator could possibly get through this defensive perimeter?
