Placer County display at the California State Fair

Placer County display at the California State Fair

Visiting the fair exhibits is one of my favorite ways to get out of the heat at the Calfornia State Fair in Sacramento. There is even an exhibit that showcases every county in California. I thought the Placer County exhibit did a really good job of showing the charm and fun the county offers, as well as how scenic it is. It looked very well though-out and put together. 

If you plan to make it out to the fair, check out Exhibit Building A on the bottom floor to see all of the county displays. You can tell everyone involved put a lot of effort into representing the charm of each individual county.

MONGOLIA - For the first time ever, the den sites of two female snow leopards and their cubs have been located and videos of the cubs have been recorded, said scientists from Panthera, a wild cat conservation organization, and the Snow Leopard Trust (SLT).
