Hogle Zoo

While visiting family in the Salt Lake valley we decided that we would go to the zoo. Tyson and I went last September and enjoyed it and thought that Lily might like to see the animals.
One of the elephants just had a baby this last August and she was a big attraction. Everyone wanted to see the baby elephant. She was really cute. Lily was more entertained by the tree than the elephants I think. She loved the zebras though. I think that it was the contrast of their stripes.
We of course had to go visit all of the great apes. They have these little murals where you can measure yourself against the size of the apes. When we went last year Tyson measured himself against the adult male. Since last year they have updated them and added more apes to measure yourself against. We decided to measure Lily against the infant gorillas and orangutans. She was a bit smaller than the infant gorilla. She was a lot closer to the size of the infant orangutan, but thankfully her arms are still a little short.
She seemed to really like them so we picked her up a little stuffed orangutan at the gift shop.


  1. Looks like great fun. That last pic of her w/ her stuffed animal is SOOO cute!!!

  2. Looks like you guys had a great time! September seems like a good time to go to the Zoo, I'll have to remember that for next year.
