Once we lathered up with sunscreen, we set out to meet the animals at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
We fed giraffes.
A select few kissed the giraffes...
Petted a pancake turtle:
As well as attempting to amputate the leg of that same pancake turtle...
Made friends with a wallaby:
And played with the river otters:
The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo was incredible. We really did feel like we met some of the animals instead of just searching for them while they hid in big cages.
