Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

I am at the Assiniboine Park Zoo a lot since I have been volunteering there for the last year and a half, but my picture taking while volunteering is limited to my cell phone.  Yesterday I had some time to go there – not as a volunteer, but as a member with my camera.  It… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit
