It’s a mummified…dog, cat, deer, sheep…..?
Lots of things that didn’t make the Lost Sea Expedition TV series are still cool to look at. I thought you’d enjoy these photos about a mummified….what the hell is that anyway…..?
Okay, let me back up. Traveling across America in a wagon is a thorough way to travel. I say “thorough” instead of “slow” because you’re always making detours and stopping for the night where the sun catches you on the western horizon. That means you get an up-close look at things you never imagined.
One evening in Kansas, Polly and I stopped at an abandoned one room school house.
I unharnessed Polly and picketed her our for the night. As she grazed, Dave Sammons, a road grader operator, dropped by for a visit. He lead me in to the old school house to show me something. Here’s what we saw.
After Dave left, I fed and watered Polly and crawled in to my wagon for the night. I swear that mummified coyote showed up in my dreams. It didn’t help that real coyotes were howling all night long just outside of my tiny, yellow wagon.
