While in the Blue Springs/Kansas City area we also decided to go to Oklahoma Joes for supper.
I must say that the line moved fairly fast, it was just a very long line. The wait time in the line was about an hour.
After leaving Missouri, we headed for Council Bluffs, Iowa. This little city is like a suburb in Omaha, NE. Though they are in different states, you can't tell when one ends and the other begins.
Beautiful corn just waiting to be picked.
We stayed at the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa. It was water and electric only sites. We were very close to what we were wanting to see.
And some made me feel like we had made a very wrong turn and were in Mexico!
If you look real close you can see the train on top of the hill. Our next choice was to go to what has been proclaimed as the "best zoo in North America!
If you had told me I would have gone to a zoo for the day without some kids dragging me along, I would have told you that you were nuts. But I must admit, we had a great time. Maybe it was because we could move at our own speed. Or it could have been because we could move at our own speed that we only saw maybe a third of the zoo.
I hated that my camera wouldn't focus on the meerkat and not the fence. I loved the pose.
After we left the dome, we headed over to the chimps and gorillas.
It was a fun day at the zoo.
