A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Woodland Park Zoo

After a series of late nights and early mornings we were completely exhausted come Saturday, so much so I actually caved for a nap. Upon waking up Cameron suggested we should go to the zoo. We could not remember ever having gone there before, but once we stepped foot onto the grounds a hazy memory came back of being there before. Since it was late in the afternoon I was afraid the animals would not be very active, but we were able to see a lot and spend some much needed time in the crisp, cold outdoors.

This chubby hippo was one of the first things we saw. As much as I enjoyed the zoo, I cannot help but feel sorry for the animals living in captivity for our enjoyment.

Do zoos make animals lazy or just depressed? This seems more like a scene out of someone's lazy Saturday than a wild animal.

One of the highlights was seeing the penguins fed. The caretaker called each of them by name. They had wonderfully spicy names like Lolita and Santiago.

Is it just me or does anyone else have conflicted feelings about visiting the zoo?
