after visiting snow line farms in oak glenn, i decided to continue my little walk down memory lane with a stop at mountain town. another spot filled with childhood memories, this campy little roadside attraction is a self-proclaimed “animal museum.” for three dollars, you can enter into a another world, which is equal parts creepy and fascinating. this little habitat is complete with stucco mountains, taxidermy animals, and real-live caged reptiles and birds. i suppose it might seem rather odd that i would be so enamored of this strange place, but perhaps that’s just the biproduct of a being raised on books by edward gorey and films like the dark crystal.
i snapped a few too many pictures to document the memory and am already scheming another trip for a proper editorial-style shoot! anyone looking to do a creepy look book?
