Elk Herd

I passed by the elk today after golf… at a spot where I’ve never seen them before: in the pasture adjacent to Mt. Si Sports and Fitness.

We had been excited to visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo since we saw the photos of their giraffes. Expectations were meant and exceeded. It was a very nice zoo but the giraffes were simply magical. With the elevated platforms visitors are eye-to-eye with the giants and they are just soooo amazing.

This little fellow perched himself on a branch of the snag where so many birds hang out. But he had an added bonus. I had the sprinkler running and every 30 seconds or so he got a little shower… which he seemed to enjoy.flicker_1010882

Tanager Visit

We hadn’t see this fellow very often but he’s been here regularly in the past week or so.

Dickinson to Billings

Today was a leisurely 318-mile drive from Dickinson, ND to Billings, MT.  We arrived early enough to stop by Zoo Montana which turned out to be a disappointment. There were few animals although the two bears were entertaining.
