Today I'll continue the tram trip around the Sedgwick County Zoo that I visited on April 22. I've actually scheduled this post because I worry that when this goes live, I may be huddled in the basement with my two "boys" hanging onto each other for dear life. Bleubeard is the smart one. He always knows when there are tornadoes or hail and heads for the basement or the lowest place he can get to under furniture on the main floor. But Squiggles comes from the same daredevil cloth as I, so I'm always the last one to duck for cover. According to the Weather Channel, the TorCon is 7, which means a 70% chance of a tornado occurring in Wichita. If you don't hear from me for a few days, you'll just have to use your imagination as to what has happened to me.
I'm going to let you peruse these photos without my diatribe, although I have to admit, these snow geese were EVERYWHERE here. They look so healthy, too. Sad that we feed them and they don't fly on to wherever they are supposed to migrate.
I asked what special event was going on, and the lady in the gift shop told me there were a lot of children from around the state on their annual field trip.
I didn't watermark this photo because I thought it was too surreal and beautiful to stick a label on it. Feel free to copy and use in your art.
I laughed at this photo where the giraffe looked like s/he popped up just in time for me to take this photo.
Not much to see on the tram, except flora, that's for sure.
This is one place I hope to visit soon.
Not sure I care if I see the Tiger Trek, but it apparently draws a big crowd. Many of the people on the tram got off to see this exhibit.
I keep wondering if gorillas have both rods and cones in their eyes, because their "play area" is so colorful.
Sally and I both commented on the photo booth. Both of us admitted we hadn't seen one in years.
We're off to the African safari. I believe the vehicle is part of the exhibit.
Zebras I couldn't get into focus.
Sally said I got a photo of the rhino, but I swear I don't see it in any of my photos.
We were now on the back side of the giraffe area. I think everyone, including myself, love giraffes.
And now we're at the end of the line, or at least the last of my photos I haven't previously shown.
If your computer hasn't frozen up at least six times by now (like mine did), I am delighted that you had a chance to join me on the tram around the Sedgwick County Zoo. Thanks for sticking till the very end.
I'll be back tomorrow with the elephants and how the elephant project nearly didn't happen. If you like elephants, please join me for that post.
