What a beautiful day at the zoo! Temperature was near perfect and the crowds were minimal.

The Aquarium has very colorful displays. Lots of large viewing windows with personnel constantly interacting with the guests.

The butterfly house was small and the butterflies were not very active.

The Lied Jungle rainforest environment was great.

I see enough desert so I gave the dome a cursory once over.

I paid extra to go on the Skyfari chair lift so I could have a tree top view of the exhibits.

Rode the steam train to get a view of the backs of some of the exhibits.

I must have walked miles today and boy am I out of shape!. Six weeks of sitting around after surgery has really set me back. Silver sneakers here I come!

I did not ride the tram or the carousel, or see the Imax movie. I was already on overload! I was ready to sit down and drive, drive, drive.

I never miss a chance to stop in Omaha Nebraska - one of my favorite cities. So many quality things to see and do. So glad I finally got to visit the zoo!
