Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

One of my favorite places to take the kids when we go to Colorado is the zoo. It is carved out of the side of a mountain. They have made a lot of exciting changes through the years. One of the best parts of the zoo is the Giraffe area. You get to be so close to the animals. The kids enjoyed feeding them special crackers!

Isabelle would giggle every time she fed them a cracker because their long tongues would "get" her.

Ian did his best to feed all of the giraffes. He didn't want to feed more to one than he did the other. He is very good at being fair like that!

We got to learn about the tigers and pet a tiger fur. The kids measured their hands up against a real tiger paw!

This gorilla always looks like he is contemplating some great issue. He has been there for years and seems to always assume that same pose! Maybe he is planning his excape!

What an amazing zoo! The only one I've been able to take my daughters to is Taronga Zoo, in Sydney - and you can't get up close and personal to the animals like your kids doing!
