Cheyenne Mountain ZOO

Today we went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs.
We had a great time! The weather was beautiful, (minus the wind).
We invited Tyler's new friend Payton to come with us.
We got to see everything!
Giraffes, elephants, tigers, wallaby's, bears, birds, monkeys,
zebras just to name a few.
I think the highlight for Tyler was feeding the GIRAFFES.
They have the longest tongues I have ever seen. If they come
close enough you can pet them too. That is always fun.
Payton didn't want to feed the giraffe. I don't blame him. It feels kind
of gross if you ask me. Payton was the navigator. He wanted to
make sure we saw everything and I think we did.
We can't wait to go back again.

Hello Mr Giraffe (very friendly)

Tyler loves feeding the giraffe's (look at the baby giraffe)

Excited little boy!

He just can't get enough

Tyler is a daring little boy and wants to pet everything.
He really liked the wallaby

The bears...

Katie loves to go for walks

There is a carousel at the zoo.
I think Payton really liked the ride

Two happy little boys

Let's go zebra

It isn't a big zoo but there is plenty to see and you don't have
to spend the entire day there.

We went to that zoo when we were there a couple of years ago. We loved it! It looks like you did too!
