Cheyenne Mt. Zoo

Today, we went South to Colorado Springs and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. The zoo is built on the side of a mountain. You make your way up the mountain to see the animals. It is pretty cool.

Some other cool things are how close some of the animals are.

We fed some crackers to giraffes.  We got to pet a wallaby.  A mountain lion walked inches away from us.

One thing the CMZ has that no other zoos I've ever been to have is a chair lift.  From the chair lift, we saw the tiger and the grizzly bears.  Both were located where we would not have been able to see them as well down below.

If you ever are in Colorado Springs.... the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is an excellent activity.  The whole family had lots of fun today at the zoo.
