Tyler is overcast and sprinkly, but I can't waste the day in a hotel room, so off to the Zoo I go.  www.caldwellzoo.org

Turns out my hotel location is perfect: I don't think I've driven ten miles to get to anything so far, and the Zoo was only a bit over five. It's small, clean, and has a nice variety of critters; the only negative was the rhino building. S T I N K Y !  I've smelled cow poop, horse poop, chicken poop, and even pig poop but, let me tell you, nothing comes close to rhino poop. Wow, I hope the zoo keepers get hazard pay - or a gas mask. Luckily, almost everything else was outdoors - one of the benefits of having a zoo down south in Texas!

I prowled for a few hours, took tons of photos, and talked to some nice folks at the white tiger cage. (Hi to Scott who lives here in Tyler, and his parents from Michigan.)

Hope everyone enjoys the photos!
