The Zoo

Trip to the North Carolina Zoo Feb. 11, 2008

Went to the NC Zoo this afternoon. It was grey and 40 degrees and some parts were closed for refurbishment and there were hardly any people there. But we had a moderately nice time. Arrived too late in the day to see it all, but got to the bird house, the prairie, the swamp and the desert. Bison weren’t too exciting - they’re better eating than viewing, but the male elk had a fantastic rack. And we saw a couple of gorgeous cougars, many snakes, fish, poisonous frogs, fabulous flamingos and an owl. Owls sure are strange looking creatures. Then thrift shopping briefly where I bought a much needed necklace and a pair of earrings NOT, and Rand got some video tapes.
