Then, on Saturday we went to lunch at Cracker Barrel and then went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It was fabulous! All of the exhibits were built in a very natural environment and it is up in the mountains, so we saw lots of wildlife that wasn't part of any exhibit. Also, the view from up there was incredible! We will definitely be going back. We encountered a major thunder storm and had to duck for cover for a while, but that's all part of the experience of nature, right?
Another great spot was discovered to take our visitors.
This deer was not part of any exhibits, just visiting, like us.

These grizzly's were having a major tif. It was incredible to watch them fighting with one another. I wouldn't want to make one of them mad, that's for sure.
Check out that view
The wallaby's had their own exhibit, but they were free to roam about and would walk right up to you
