"Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."

August, 2011: Cheyene Mountain Zoo

This zoo, in Colorado Springs, is best known for its gentle giraffes that are at eye level with people in their enclosure. For $2 you can buy fresh lettuce and feed them. They stick out their black tongues for the treats.

The zoo is quite hilly, but is layed out well and there is a sense of wildlife in the wild rather than caged. As a matter of fact, we encountered two stag deer, with their horns in velvet, who were not in a cage. They have wandered onto the zoo property and apparently like the grazing around the cages. They also had no fear of people, and I was able to get quite close to take a photo.
