Lions and Tigers…But No Bears?

This past week I went out to the San Diego Safari Park.  Crossed one item off my list, and it was spec­tac­u­lar.  I only wish I had more energy or at least another day to see it again.  It on my list of places to re-visit.  The ani­mals were so close at times (check out the lion pho­tos) that it was hard to believe I couldn’t reach out and touch them.  They do offer an option to stay overnight in the park which is added as well to my list of things to do along with the chee­tah inter­ac­tion where you can see the chee­tah up close after it’s run.

Some of the ani­mals were sleep­ing, but there were plenty that were not.  The tiger area was under con­struc­tion, so I only got a brief glimpse of them and sadly, no good pictures.

Other than some basic nature pic­tures, this is the first time I’ve really seen what my cam­era can do.  I still have so much to learn, but these pic­tures are amaz­ing.  I re-visited the lions as they were mov­ing around a bit more than some of the other ani­mals, and I’m glad I did.  The lionesses hadn’t moved much, but the lion sprawled out feet up in the grass.

If you haven’t been, I highly rec­om­mend tak­ing a trip to see it.  I’ve heard good things about the San Diego Zoo as well.  Per­haps on my next trip.



And that’s one more item off my 35 by 35.
