Omaha, Nebraska
When I decided to visit Omaha, I knew that one place I would have to go is the zoo. I grew up watching "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom," so this was a way of connecting with my past.

They had some good exhibit areas and lots of animals. The rope bridge below was very popular.

The waterfall created an interesting picture.

Seeing penguins and a giraffe together is not an everyday sight for me, so I thought the combination to be very interesting -- these penguins are the warm-weather species, so actually they do go together.

Leaving Nebraska I drove to Clive, Iowa (a suburb of Des Moine) to see some friends.
