Hogle Zoo

On November 3, it was forecasted to be beautiful weather, in the high 60's. I hadn't taken my kids to the zoo yet this year, and my girls were about to go back on track until January, so I figured this was probably my last opportunity to go this year. So I called my mom & sister, and we all went and enjoyed a perfect day at the zoo!

He just looks sad. Doesn't he?

I love tigers! There were 3 of them all sleeping here in this corner.

I made some noise, and one of them opened his eyes and looked at me.


After seeing all the animals and going on the train, we let the kids burn off some more energy at the playground.
I love the zoo. I just wish it was a little closer, and a little less expensive. Maybe I'll get a season pass next year. I hear they pay for themselves if you go 2 or 3 times.

We also saw the area where they are renovating and expanding. It looks like it's going to be pretty awesome! I think it will be done Spring 2012.

When I grow up I want to be able to take fantastic artistic photos like you. Your images painted a fun picture of your day at the zoo.

Great pictures, Tia! Looks like a perfect fun day. And I had no idea the zoo had bats. I've never seen them.

Looks like so much fun, wish I could have been there! I love all the close up pictures of the giraffes, and gorillas, and tigers. Love the sad monkey, so funny! We need to plan a time next year to go all together!

Love all your pictures. We recently went to the zoo and those bats creeped me out! Looks like you all had a good time!

Looks like fun! I like your animal shots, especially the feet of whatever primate that was, gorilla or something? Cute!
