We had a wonderful visit yesterday to the NC Zoo in Asheboro. The weather was sunny and in the mid-70s making it perfect to get out and see the animals. The zoo is quite large and divided into two sections – North America and Africa. We started at the Africa entrance planning to visit just that one half. Walking the entire zoo is approximately 5 miles and, at 26 weeks, I wasn’t sure if I was up to that. Suprisingly, I felt great the entire day and we walked almost all of it!
At the start of the day checking out the elephants:
Better view of the elephants from further down the path (even though we enjoyed this new path during our visits last year, I’m still in awe how close we can get to the elephants now) :
Bison relaxing (these guys were always way across the field and hard to see during our visits last year) :
Pardon the glare from the glass – this chimp was a total showoff and had fun coming up to the window & interacting with the kids:
Giraffe (the zoo is opening a new feeding station next month where you can feed the giraffe leaves – can’t wait to try this on our next visit) :
And, yes, I did manage to capture a few shots of a zebra as I mentioned in yesterday’s post. This particular zebra was starting to chase a couple ostrich:
Still having fun chasing those ostrich around and entertaining the crowd:
Hey, I tagged you on my blog for Photo Tag!
How fun you took the baby to the zoo! :)
And GUESS WHAT THE WORD VERIFICATION IS TODAY???
