Last weekend the weather here in Edmonton was just fantastic. It was about 25°F, but trust me, after spending weeks in temperatures like -2°F to -4°F, 25 with bright sunshine and crisp air sure felt like a treat. I’m amazed at how soon I’ve adjusted to temperatures here specially coming from Houston. I seriously never thought I would. But it hasn’t been that bad except for very bad chilly days. So, we thought of getting out and exploring the city and decided to pay a visit to the zoo.
I have been documenting and blogging about our travel to Canada and the brief time that we are spending here in Edmonton (See the previous posts here and here).
Even as a kid, I remember how excited I used to be to go to the zoo. My fav memory being visiting the lions cage, feeding the elephants and eating cotton candy the whole time. Although a few sections of the valley zoo were closed for winter, most of it was open. We saw animals and birds which are mainly found in cold temperatures like the Siberian tiger and the Arctic Wolf (one of my fav. I loved the thick white fur and how it camouflaged with the snow).
