Tuesday I took a much need day off work. My sister, two nieces and I enjoyed perfect weather at the St. Louis Zoo. After suffering through weeks of hideous humidity we definitely deserved a day like this:)
The main attraction we wanted to see was Kali the new polar bear and the newly reconstructed habitat. Kali is 2 1/2 years old and already weighs 850 pounds. He was orphaned after an Alaska Native hunter killed his mother in a subsistence hunt - not realizing she had a cub. He arrived in St. Louis this summer. The hope is to find him a mate and perhaps have cubs in the future.
I remembered to wear my Garmin and was surprised to see I ended up walking 5 miles!
I can't wait to go back. If I lived closer I think I would want to go walking and photographing there every day :)
