most people, who live in colorado springs, have probably visited our fantastic zoo. however, if you haven’t, or if you are planning a trip to colorado springs, you need to put the cheyenne mountain zoo on your list of things to do! make sure you bring your walking shoes...this isn’t your typical city zoo. cheyenne mountain zoo is the only mountain zoo in north america. it begins at 6,800 feet above sea level and continues to almost 7,000 feet for some exhibits. it’s a great way to spend a day in nature with your family and get a little work out in too!
there are lots of opportunities for interacting with the animals and the habitats are truly built into the beautiful surroundings of the colorado mountains.
so far, the bird’s favorite thing is feeding the giraffes.
