Geology diorama a surprise in Safford

We stopped by the Chamber of Commerce in Safford for directions and discovered a wonderful diorama of Pleistocene-Holocene geology. Mammoths roam the end-of-Ice Age terrain, with tapirs, sloths, and sabre-toothed cats.

Around the corner is a mammoth tusk, tooth, and other bones found locally.

In a land so fill of geologic diversity and abundance, it's a recurring treat to find such small treasures in unexpected places.
