Geocaching at the Detroit Zoo

 Spent a glorious Saturday wondering around the Detroit Zoological Gardens with the family.  Call me biased, but it really is the most wonderful place to have an annual membership.  I live about a half mile from there so I can stop whenever I want to see the animals, walk among the gorgeous flowers, look at the art.

Rackham Fountain - Hipstamatic app!
Today, my brother (Jeremy, brother #5) and his family (Rocking Robyn and their son, Mr. Energy), as well as my sister Lorna, introduced me to geocaching.  To put it simply:
Geocaching is a global treasure hunting game.  Participants hide & seek hidden physical containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share their adventures online.
The Detroit Zoo has four of them hidden there, and, as beginner's luck would have it, I found the first one first time out!  (I hope I'm not breaking any unwritten rules by posting the pics here - I'm a newbie!) And, in case you were wondering.... there's an app for that!

We also saw SO many amazing animals today, also.  They were posing for us!  I've tried to select only a handful, but there are SO many!

This is the peacock I p*ssed off!  It charged me!  Look how close it got!

Hope you enjoyed my little tour of the local zoo.  It's an amazing place to get your Vitamin Z!
