I can’t believe that we have lived in Colorado Springs for a year, and, until today, we still hadn’t been to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. We did try to go about this time last year but we inadvertently went on the last day of spring break. That day it was an hour wait just to get into the parking lot! Since we live so close, we decided to wait until another day. I did notice some construction going on there today and it looks like they may be extending the parking. So hopefully those long waits won’t be a problem anymore!
Anyway, now that we’ve been to the zoo, I can tell you it’s a pretty cool place! I had lots of fun taking pictures of the animals. If you ever have a chance to visit, it’s well worth it! Here’s five reasons why (with lots of pictures, of course!).
