the few days left on vacation.
Part of Griffith Park in L.A. is the Los Angeles ZOO. We had heard that a new baby monkey had been born and since it had been a long time since we had been to a Zoo, we decided to make the trip.
What a great way to spend the day with 80 degree weather. Our Buffalo Zoo pales in comparison to the LA Zoo. It is a well thought out and natural Zoo with plenty of park benches every few yards, restrooms in every area of interest and small food areas with different foods to pick from. It is a winding trail that you need a map to follow with.
Every animal area is most natural and roomy with small fences and shrubs with a moat to separate the animals from the humans but it allows you to get very close to the animals. It also provided excellent picture taking opportunities. The animals actually seem to be happy, centered in the most natural environment surrounding them.
A real effort is made for the giraffes to reach high to feed themselves with branches actually placed daily, hanging for them to eat off of. It was very clean along the whole pathway which is not the case in many zoos.
By the end of the day, “our dogs were barking” and we were glad to sit down. I highly recommend visiting this attraction in LA if you are in the area, both young and old will enjoy the visit.
We are sorry to hear of the passing Judith's father, 'Bert Meyers.'
"In the early morning hours this past Wednesday, 03-11-15, my dad peacefully joined my mom in heaven; it was the best way to pass away I could have asked for, no suffering, with a peaceful end to 95 years of life" Judith Whitehead
