praise the LORD from the earth

Praise the LORD from the earth,

Photobucket

you…snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,

Photobucket

you mountains and…wild animals.

Psalm 148:7-10

This lively snow leopard was our favorite animal at the zoo. Prowling and leaping—what a show!

As snow flakes began to swirl, we concluded our mountain zoo visit. Here was our view of Colorado Springs from zoo grounds (about 6800 ft. elevation).

I would heartily recommend Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to any families visiting the area. Although I wish the weather had not been so cold and windy, I don’t think we would have enjoyed climbing the side of the mountain in 90* heat either. Maybe someday we can return in moderate weather. Admission to the zoo would normally have cost our family $50, but a military discount reduced our rate to $42.

    That ranks right up there as either our most favorite or 2nd favorite zoo that we’ve ever visited!
