At the Oregon Zoo
The zoo excels at birds, especially water fowl. It also has a northwestern exhibit with elk, wolves, bears, etc. The bears were off today and everyone else was sleeping, but you have to expect that at zoos sometimes. These lionesses were awake. I wonder if the little kids to my left looked like prey.
The zoo restaurant has several nice alternatives to hot dogs and other fast food. I had delicious teriyaki beef with a fresh vegetable slaw over brown rice. When I asked about deserts, the cashier recommended the elephant ears from a snack station in the park. When I found the station, there was a very long line. I'll just assume the elephant ears delicious, too.
