"Any glimpse into the life of an animal
quickens our own and makes it
so much the larger and better in every way."
A few weeks ago SC and I had the opportunity to tag along with AC on a trip to New York City, and one of the things we did was visit the Bronx Zoo. As I was planning this zoo visit, I realized that in SC's five short years of life, we have visited quite a few zoos in the US already. For this week's Top Ten Tuesday, I want to highlight the zoos we have been to, as well as a few we have yet to get to.
Zoos We Have ALREADY Visited:
2. Houston Zoo
*I think I would have loved The Bronx Zoo much more if we had not gone on "pay what you will" day. There were so many people, including many large summer camp groups, that it was unmanageable for SC, and we didn't get to see even half the zoo before she insisted we leave and refused to look at any animals on our way out.
6. Point Defiance Zoo (Tacoma, WA)
Zoos We Have YET TO Visit:
7. Smithsonian's National Zoo (Washington, D.C.)
9. Woodland Park Zoo (Seattle, WA)
10. Audubon Zoo (New Orleans, LA)
PLUS, two foreign zoos I would love to visit:Edinburgh Zoo
