Woodland Park Zoo

Posted: April 1, 2015 in Ramblings

Well, the Young Master has been wanting to go there ever since the Christmas season, but we weren’t able to do it.  So I promised him we’d go over spring break.  It seemed an opportune day today, since we had no other plans and it’s midweek.  This was a very good call – the only real problem was all the strollers around!

Also, the weather predictions were for thunderstorms and a 60% chance of rain today.  You will see from my pics just how accurate MSN Weather is.  Groan.

Alex will also be blogging about this, posting his own photos, so you will get two perspectives eventually.

These photos were taken with a Fujifilm X-T1 with the 18-135mm WR kit lens.  All settings were on auto because I haven’t yet had a lot of time to start exploring the nuances of this type of camera.

Lazy wolf.  I guess when there's nothing else to do all day, he might as well lie around.

Mountain goat.  Good thing he's not in the same enclosure as the wolf!
