Last week’s whirlwind trip to Michigan, Ohio and Indiana was lots of fun. Meeting up with good friends and seeing some new sights made for a perfect long weekend. The Detroit Zoo‘s new Polk Penguin Conservation Center is a 33,000-square-foot facility with a 326,000-gallon, 25-foot-deep aquatic area where you can watch more than 80 penguins (King, Gentoo, Rockhopper and Macaroni) explore their habitat. The cool temperatures inside the habitat made for a great visit on a hot summer’s day.POLKPENGUIN

While at the Zoo you can see the Penguins going through their seasonal molt, the snow monkeys as playful as ever and the new dwarf and banded mongoose tearing around their habitats.  All  fun to observe. Come visit.
