Day at the Zoo
We went to the Minnesota Zoo on September 10th to see if the Grizzly Coast exhibit would live up to its hype. We got free tickets through the Library Museum Pass which was an added bonus. The exhibit cost the Zoo $24 million and was very well done. The entrance has some very nice metal sculptures and a water fountain. Of course the hightlight of the area was the grizzly exhibit. We were extremely fortunate to get there as two of the three grizzlies were "duking it out" right in front the glass lookout area. I took a lot of pictures but of course none were able to capture the playfulness of the bears or how massive they are even though these aren't fully grown.
