Morning at the ZOO!

We spent a wonderful, very brisk morning exploring the Knoxville Zoo. While some of the animals were inside because of the cold, it was awesome to have the place almost all to ourselves. Here's Zach about to check out Black Bear Falls.

Some of the falls at Black Bear Falls are frozen, but very pretty!

Look at those sleepy bears!


My very favorite of the day, the Red Panda. These guys were so cute and friendly, and probably the most active of the animals we got to admire.

Our friend the Raven. We kept saying "Nevermore" to him. He replied, "Tom". We're still not sure what he meant.

Hee hee.

Why hello.

Zach compares his wingspan to that of the Andean Condor.
Condor wins, but Zach's way taller.

Winner of the cutest zoo animal. Turn around baby!

Not the winners of the cutest zoo animals.

See ya later!

What a cool place to see! It's always more fun when you don't have to share the viewing space with a bunch of other people. Then you can say "Nevermore" as long as you want!
