Thanks to everyone who is humoring me by looking at my summer vacation photos! We had a good time in Chicago, and another place we enjoyed was the Brookfield Zoo. This is a HUGE zoo. We only saw half of it. I LOVE Zoo Atlanta, and I still do. Zoo Atlanta is easy to walk through in one visit. The Brookfield Zoo is a wonderful zoo, but there was a lot of walking between exhibits.
The Brookfield Zoo has a rich history, which you can read more about here. I also wrote about the zoo in my recent column that I mentioned in my last post regarding The Field Museum. You can read that by clicking here.
Tropics World is where in 1996 a small boy fell into the exhibit and a female gorilla held him until authorities could retrieve him. Amazing!
