Dan and I seem to make it to the zoo at least once every winter. We usually try to go when it’s snowing outside, which seriously cuts down on the crowds and screaming children, but yesterday we just needed some exercise and so we decided to walk to the zoo, crowds be damned. It was actually pretty cold, so there weren’t as many people as there could have been, and there were lots of cute babies and little kids.
There were also lots of animals. Here are some of the good photos I got.
We spent a good amount of time, as we always do, in the Great Ape area. On display were the two bachelor brother gorillas (rather than the big silverback and his family) and they were amusing themselves. We spoke with a docent who volunteers in the Great Ape area, who told us a lot about the apes that we never would have known.
The Denver Zoo may not be world-class, but it’s still a pretty good zoo, and, all things considered, an excellent deal. Plus, walking to and from the zoo is good exercise for us during a weekend of sloth and gluttony!
