adventures in colorado // cheyenne mountain zoo

every time i'm in colorado springs, i take a trip to the zoo. every time. you can find some photographic evidence of that here and here. best friend and her hubs used to have a membership and we would go when i was out for a visit. it's like going on a safe and secure safari adventure! so when liz found out i was coming on this business trip with her, the first thing she said was "i want to go to that zoo your friends take you to!" the zoo::i talk about it to anyone who will listen.

the giraffes are my absolute favorite. i could probably stay at that exhibit all day long. they are so graceful and awkward all at the same time...sort of like me. bahahaha. it's a gift, people. it's a gift.

we spent a couple hours wandering around the zoo, checking out the animal kingdom, and breathing in the fresh colorado mountain air. i also may or may not have sung half the songs from the lion king. 
the cirrrrrrcle of liiiiiiiife. YOLO.

// what's you favorite part about the zoo? //
p.s. the penguins make me sad.

Aw your photos really captured the spirit of the zoo! Visiting a zoo in the mountains sounds really interesting; compared to our zoo near the bayou. I guess Louisiana has a lot of interesting water animals to see that's pretty native to here. But the mountains sounds even better!

It's so cool that the giraffes can come right up to the fence and say hi!
