Route 66 Day 15
Today we investigated some of Sedona's attractions. Just out of town there is a zoo, well more of a "safari park" called "Out Of Africa". A friend of ours who did some of Route 66 had recommended it, and it was good fun. You get a trip round in a truck: some of the animals come up to the truck and the keeper gives them suitably healthy titbits. One of the giraffes is tame enough for the customers to feed bits of carrot. All the animals are bred in captivity (some are rescued from neglectful owners). They have a Siberian white tiger, and several other tigers who are sufficiently well-behaved around people to do a "tiger splash" display with the keepers.
I was going to attach a video of Tom Paxton doing "We're Going to the Zoo", but it seems there's no such thing to be had online (without digging for days, anyway). In fact there seems to be shamefully little Tom Paxton out there to be attached. Here, then, is one of my favourite songs (from anyone): the video is from a fan, but never mind that. Tom paxton fans of the world unite!
