And, we're off! Here we go on the Hermann Park Conservatory Train! We were first in line for tickets and the first riders on the train. I was insistent that we arrive early to the zoo if we were going to go at all over spring break. From what I hear, the number of people that go to the zoo on a spring break day is 20 times the number on a regular day. So, we were kind of crazy to tackle the zoo on this day. But, I've been called worse. So, we arrived in the parking lot around 9:30am and we were good to go.
