Flamingo, peccary, red wolf, fisher.
We drove over to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park here in Syracuse
this afternoon to enjoy the unseasonably warm temps and to get some use out of
the family zoo pass we were given as a gift a few months ago. Under ordinary
circumstances I’m not much of a fan of zoos (mutated Zoo! strand in my DNA?).
Today the zoo was as good as it could be: cool, minimal crowds (aside from the
penguin hut), and smooth-going around the half-mile trail: just right for an
hour-and-a-half family outing in what is almost certain to be the last gasp of
enjoyable autumn weather.
