Because today is Veteran's day and the schools are closed, we celebrated by adventuring out to the Wild Animal Park. Actually I think they just changed the name to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It is the sister park to the San Diego Zoo. I think this park started out as the location the zoo used to breed their animals. It is not your traditional zoo as many of the animals pretty much roam in the open space. Of course they keep the lions away from the general population but they let the lions have a view of the animals they would normally hunt. You can take a tram through the plains to get a closer look. If you are willing to shell out the big bucks you can ride on a truck and get right up close.
