This weekend Maria's Postcards for the Weekend link-up theme is "Museum/University." Those of us who collect postcards are to dig through our collection and find some cards to share that match the theme. Those of you who have followed us for a while will know that a large part of our postcard collection is related to Yellowstone National Park. So, sure enough, we found a card showing the Museum at Mammoth Hot Springs. Thanks to Maria for hosting the link-up.
