On Thursday, we took Mason to Wilderness Walk. It’s a combination petting zoo / actual zoo / old time pioneer village that both SuperDad and I have fond memories of visiting as a kid. Mason had a great time, but in my adult eyes, it wasn’t nearly as fun as I remember it – it seemed really run down and like an extremely run down petting zoo. I don’t think we’ll be going back, but at least we got some adorable pictures from this visit.
The “animal nursery” was mainly animals like rabbits, guinea pigs, and kittens, something that we don’t have to go far to see at home. They were also trying to sell baby skunks and foxes, which didn’t thrill me (even though baby skunks ARE adorable)
Mason loved having free reign on the hiking trails
My favorite part of the day was watching dozens of deer in the woods, most of which crossed the trail 40 feet in front of us – one came close enough to touch had we tried.
Mason got to pet a camel
We spent a lot of time chasing following various birds, mostly roosters and peacocks
Panning for gold in the old mining village
Checking out the shops
The jail (unfortunately, Mason was too short to pose in the stocks)
Then we saw this crime bulletin
Since we did not want to get in trouble for harboring a criminal, we turned him in, pronto
Sadly, he perished while in jail. Sadly for this picture, we could not convince him to lay down in the “boat” Hahaha
We finished the day trying out the world’s most dangerous playground and feeding the fish, which are not very photogenic.
Mason had a great time
