live in the sunshine, swim the sea

Ask me anything   Submit   I like nature, so I decided to blog about it.


A visit to Colorado Springs isn’t complete without a visit to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the only mountainside zoo in the U.S.  At 6,800 feet above sea level, it’s a bit of a hike but definitely worth it.  Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is also home to the largest giraffe heard in the country (18!) Pay a couple bucks for a handful of lettuce and watch 3-4 giraffes get suddenly very interested in what you have to say :)

The day ended with some hiking around Helen Hunt Falls, more crazy weather, and some great late-afternoon views of downtown Colorado Springs.
