The gates are decorated in their holiday finery.
And it was Tree Trimming Day!
Some of the ornaments were wonderful handmade ones.
The gorillas were putting on a fine show, piling hay on their heads and I guess wondering why it wouldn't stay there.
The beautiful buffalo.
Look at this big ol' hippo peeking at us.
And on to the camels.
These sweet faces, watching a grey squirrel run around in front of them on the grass.
The royal elephants.
And a stop for Dip 'n Dots! yum!
Some trees supplied their own decorations. The most beautiful ornaments.
A lazy day. Sleeping in the sun.
Almost all of the animals were out today with the cooler weather. A perfect afternoon for a sunny but cool nap for the lions and tigers.
