Mini-Vacation, Part II

So after the morning and lunch at the zoo, we headed down south to Northwest Trek. It is a 600 acre wildlife park, with bison, moose, caribou, deer, goats, beavers, lots of birds, and much more. If you go to the zoo, you get buy one get one free entrance into the park. Once you get in, they have a few animal exhibits, but the fun part is that you go on a 55 minute tram ride through the park and get to see all of the animals up close. It was beautiful and very peaceful. It had originally belonged to a couple, who had lived then in an A-frame for years. I can't even imagine how peaceful a life that would have been. It was just beautiful, and so fun to see all the animals on the tour.






Afterward, we wandered around a bit, took some pictures and played. It was getting cold and we were all getting tired.

We then drove until we found a little local Mexican restaurant for some yummy food to end the day. We were out in the middle of nowhere, but really, those little Mexican restaurants are always fast and delicious.

We may not be high-rollers, and able to travel the world on Spring Break, but we sure have fun just bumming around together. I can't believe I have to back to work on Monday. Yuck...one more week please!

I'm glad that you made it to both. I'm sure it made for a very long day, but looks like it was a lot of fun. Better than spending 2 hrs at the Dr. Blah.
