AAA Editor Notes

Musk Ox Farm, 2 mi. n. at Milepost 50 on Glenn Hwy. to 12850 E. Archie Rd., is said to be the only musk ox domestication project in the world. The shaggy creatures are valued for their fine underwool called “qiviut.” Eskimos knit the hair, eight times warmer by weight than wool, into hats and scarves. Hands-on exhibits are available. Guided tours offer insight into the animal's history and behavior and allow observation from fenced walkways. Picnicking is permitted.
$11; $9 (ages 65+); $5 (ages 5-17).
Hours: Daily 10-6, mid-May to mid-Sept. Tours depart regularly throughout the day. Last tour begins at closing.
