Zoo #3 on our Colorado and Utah 2016 Zoocation was amazing. The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is literally built on the side of a mountain at 6800 ft. A special shout out to Director Bob Chastain and Patty Mussone, Bob’s Executive Assistant for making this visit so very memorable. We were treated like royalty and got to spend much of the visit driven in a golf cart which truly helped my bum knee. Cherished memories include up-close visits with their grizzly bears, an elephant feed, a vulture feed, hanging out with their 15 giraffes, their red river hog family, lions, hippos, penguins and so much more. Amazing!CHEYENNE

This sure brings back fond memories. I lived in Colorado Springs for a few years when I was a kid. A Sunday afternoon at the Cheyenne mountain zoo was one of my favorite outings. I loved the elephant enclosure at the beginning of the path that wound up into the zoo. It must be so different now. Thanks for the memories Judy!
