Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:
Linda and I are longtime members of the San Diego Zoological Society, and have enjoyed visiting the San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park and the San Diego Safari Park (used to be Wild Animal Park) near Escondido. At the Safari Park, visitors can pay a fee to take a truck tour through the different areas of "Africa" where wildlife roams free (but within boundaries to separate predators from their food).
In April 2007, we visited the Safari Park and took the truck tour through the area that has the giraffes. Of course there is giraffe food to entice the animals.
1) Here is a giraffe checking out the potential feeders in the truck:
2) Linda escaped with all of her fingers intact:
3) Randy has some green leaves that are being eyed by the giraffe:
4) A giraffe family looking for leaves on the barren trees.
