It is no coincidence that today’s Daily Post Word is Eyes. I am on a trip in Northern Minnesota with a couple amazing friends (who are getting married and want to get married up here) and my beautiful bride.
Today we started out slow, but by ten a.m. we were out the door and waiting at the gate of The Lake Superior Zoo. Definitely an impressive thing to visit if you are in the area. They experienced some flooding in 2013 and are still in the recovery process of that. But, they still have an amazing selection of things to see. Have you ever actually seen the eye of the tiger? Today, I literally got to look eye to eye with one!! Lemurs, lizards and spiders exhibits all got our hearts racing. And then we entered the night!
It took a few minutes for our eyes to adjust, but the sites to see in the nocturnal exhibit were amazing!! Bats, and cute, fuzzy four-legged animals that look cuddly, but know how to hold their own in the darkness of the wild can be seen! As we exited the darkness we wandered to a souvenir penny machine that gave out engraved, flattened pennies commemorating the zoo. Peacocks, a bald eagle and cranes are available for all bird lovers. And I got to witness what I can only imagine Bugs Bunny would look like as a real bunny at 22 pounds!!
There is so much to see at The Great Lakes Zoo that you have to experience it yourself. I recommend the zoo, but bring your walking shoes and if you are in a wheelchair like me, make sure your arms are in good shape for all the paved hills.
Or, ride in style. But if you are in Duluth, Minnesota, make sure to visit The Lake Superior Zoo. It will be a memorable experience with many great species of animals. There is even a petting zoo for those who wish to get up close. Check them out online at www.lszooduluth.org and plan your visit soon!!
