One of a kind
Surrounded by it, snow is comprised of millions of snowflakes, each unique in design and composition. Befuddling people since 135 B.C., technology has allowed a better look at how a snowflake forms and what it looks like close up. The Museum of Northwest Colorado in Craig has a snowflake exhibit on display that’s second to none, featuring photos from William Bentley and Kenneth Libbrecht; the exhibit has many other items for patrons viewing pleasure. Before ascending the stairs to the exhibit, the center of the museum features a video on the history of recording snowflakes and displays some of the first microscopes ever used to view them on loan from Yale University.
