On Vacation - A day at the zoo...

Clayton's mom and Pat are here visiting and I am on Vacation while they are here. It's so nice to have time off and to explore Wisconsin even more. We went to the Marshfield Zoo today, which is only an hours drive away, and it was a beautiful day and I was so surprised to see such great animals at this zoo. The bear, well Miss Grizz did not seem so happy, she needs a new place to stay, and they are trying to raise enough money to get her a new 'dig'; she looked really old and when she walked it kind of just broke your heart, I did manage to get some 'happy' looking pictures of her, but I almost got tears in my eyes watching her. Most of the others seems pretty happy, well as happy as an animal can be being behind fences and in a small confined area. The Eagles made my day! finally I got up close and personal with a bald eagle, WOW; they prairie dogs were a hoot! Loved them and the Wood Duck oh so colorful was a very pleasant surprise. So here are a few pictures with a link to a slide show of the rest of the best....enjoy.

  1. Wow! Wow! Nice photos. Nice and sharp and colorful and fun. Jealous of your close encounter with the eagle. I've seen eagles at zoos before, but your guy looks tough and healthy. Sorry about Mrs. Bear. Hope there will be a nice place for her to live soon. The prairie dogs have such personality, don't they?
