I went to the state zoo in Asheboro today.
I wanted to play with a new camera and what better place to take pictures than a zoo?
I invited a friend to go along since I have a 1+1 membership. We were there from when they opened at 9am to 3:35pm---almost their closing time---and we never stopped walking the entire day.
Her shins were hurting and my feet just ached. Dehydrated? Sure, as well as being a little sunburnt where sweating and wiping cleaned the sunblock off, but it's great to see so many animals and their respective environments in just one day.
I took 510 pictures with my Canon, I'm not sure how many Nancy took with her camera but she was snapping away the whole time too.
The morning was misty and somewhat overcast but the afternoon was sunny and peaked around 86f. Beautiful weather to be walking around for us. Though by noon a lot of the critters were holed up and unavailable for photoshoots.
