After wandering around the main campus area, we took in some of the outlying sights.

We visited the geology museum. This guy had something to do with it but I forget exactly what. he probably gave lots of money
a really big sea snail? Some sort of fossilized sea creature of some sort.
This is a bald eagle made out of rocks and/or minerals. our national bird

More of those fossilized whatnots. whatever

about $300 per square foot Up the hill form the geology museum was this house. It was built by a famous architect specifically to be featured in Southern Living magazine. It is now a sort of visitor center/nature center.
This girl greeted us at the house and made her little speech. welcome
looks a little like one of Beckie's relatives Folk art pottery.
This animatronic raccoon sat on the mantle in one of the rooms. He freaked us all out for a second. He was remarkably lifelike and he told stories and the boys were quite taken with him. scarey ass raccoon
yikes Dead butterflies.
After a while, Jack got bored. time to go
no stings Dead bees in a petri dish next to a microscope. We didn't study these specimens.
After the Southern Living house, we swung by the Botanical Graden. This is a bell of some sort that has something to do with Clemson having been a military college. ding dong
