I got into hiking last summer after a trip to the Smokey Mountains. There are so many cool places to explore here in Tennessee.
I always try to take my camera with me because I always seem to stumble across something cool. After this one particular hike I found a nature center that had some animal, mostly cow, skulls on display.
I don't know what it is about skulls, but I find them so fascinating. I wanted to take them all home. Obviously I couldn't/didn't. Ever since that day I feel like I've been seeing cow skull things everywhere now.
On Instagram, this cool, hand sculpted clay necklace popped up, and I've been obsessing about it ever since. The Dainty Squid wrote about Skull Cleaning 101, which I don't think I'm going to be doing anytime soon, but still super interesting to read.
