Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

We love checking out the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo whenever we go to Colorado Springs. This year, Sammy was able to feed to giraffes (a fun experience for young & old alike). Yes, the tongue of a giraffe is REALLY that long, even a bit longer. Anyway, you can get really up close & personal with these guys. The Cheyenne zoo is known for their giraffe breeding program.
