Specifically the North Carolina Zoo. When I was younger, one of my favorite adventures was a trip to the NC Zoo, often with my friends on my birthday. This past weekend I was glad to make it back on a visit with my awesome girlfriend. Her favorite animal to see was the bison and we lucked out with most of them carousing close to the viewing area. We got some good photos and a nice up close look at some buffalo. She was thrilled. I like almost every animal at the zoo, but my favorites tend to be bears and wolves. The red wolves were out and about, pacing and running all over their natural area.
