Trip to the Catoctin Zoo

Well, it has been a long day. Besides waking up at 6am like I normally seem to be doing now. I had several long hours to wait for Midori so that I and her could go to Rockville and go to G-street, a rather expensive fabric store about an hour away.

I figured since I was out and about and in the area....I would go to the Catoctin Zoo and Wildlife Preserve. http://www.cwpzoo.com/. 13019 Catoctin Furnace Rd., Thurmont, MD 21788. $14,95 per adult. Open till 6pm.

I must say that I am pleasantly surprised and pleased with the experience. Yes, it does have the "petting zoo by the roadside feel", but, it is rather void of omg numbers of people, I believe that we only saw a total of 20 people our entire time there. It is also a rather friendly atmosphere. The employees are actually rather knowledgeable and care about their jobs and the animals, not like many other zoo's I have been to. Not only that, it is a fairly large area with several exhibits, the animals literally just inches within your reach. If you wanted to be retarded and lose a finger by trying to pet the animals your not supposed to, all the more power to you. :P

Oh and they have a resident lazy coon with his own little house. ^.^
