One of the things Lisa really wanted to do during her time here was to go rafting on the Arkansas River. So, she and Jim made plans to go today while I took Karli to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
Karli and I arrived at the zoo located next to the Broadmoor Hotel. It is built into the side of the mountain.
The first thing we did was go to the giraffes. There is a walkway high enough to be a eye and neck level of the giraffes. You definitely have a close encounter with them.
We got the giraffe food and fed them. They definitely have long tongues!
More spectacular views!
There was a playground on the top.
As we came back down, I snapped this picture of the Broadmoor Hotel.
They definitely had a wonderful time. They didn't fall into the water and were really excited about the whole experience. Here are some of their pictures.
