Yesterday was a zoo day. Unfortunately we forgot that hordes of folk are on Spring Break. Thus, the zoo was a zoo.

But we got in some good face time with the gorillas and snakes (a rather odd pairing, if you ask me, but they're Ben's big favorites) and saw the hugely athletic and bouncy lion cubs. They're in the gangly adolescent stage.

Overall, a nice time and looking forward to summer visits.




  1. The clarity of the first and last photos are truly amazing! Those colors so vibrant. I believe this is the zoo I used to visit when I stayed in university district Seattle hotels a few years ago. Is this the one nearest that area? Looks familiar, though definitely updated!

  2. Thanks Kevin. Yup, this is our local zoo: Woodland Park. It’s come a long way from the concrete walls and metal bars of my childhood. It’s a sweet little zoo.
