Zoo fun

I keep meaning to post about our trip to the zoo on Memorial Day. We went right when it opened and therefore got to see some very awake and active animals in light crowds. Some friends of ours were there and we got to chat with them on the playground a bit too. Culvers for lunch followed. It was a lot of fun.

The best thing was that the grizzly bears were awake and one was swimming. Here are some pics and a video. Also a picture of the family.

  7. Is there a Culvers now in CO? When I lived in Wisconsin, I knew Mr. Culver.

  8. Wow! I've never seen a bear swim before.I'm from Canada, though, and I've done a lot of backcountry camping and backpacking, so I've seen my fair share of grizzlies… walking along trails… standing at our campsites staring at us… or, unfortunately, going through our tents to find the toothpaste that someone neglected to put into the bear-proof containers. I have a healthy respect for them (carry bear-bangers and bear spray when hiking), but they are majestic.
