This past weekend was my children's fall break from school. Since it is still VERY WARM here we decided to head out to the zoo. Always to show a good time-- this time was no different. We saw monkeys eating from people's hands, ostriches running, bears yawning and the giraffes eating tree branches that people held up to them. It was my time to shine. I love animal photography and this time i was sure to get a few great images. After the zoo we went on a hike at a nearby old saw mill trail. Now, let me tell you, I have a broken foot and have been in a boot for nearly 6 weeks, so climbing the trails was a little tricky, but boy was it fun. We saw poisonous snakes, spiders, flowers etc. Here are a few images from our journey!
