Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary

Today we went to the Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary, the recently-opened and much-improved (and under-new-ownership) version of what used to be called the Yellow River Game Ranch. The family who bought the property two years ago after the DNR shut it down has done a great job of improving it. Much of it is the same, but the improvements and additions are significant and much-needed; it feels better maintained, and the animals seem well-cared-for.

Here are a few of the pictures I took while we were there:

(It isn't all a petting zoo, as you might assume from these pictures; I just didn't get any good pictures of the parts that aren't.)

Here's Elyse taking a selfie among the bamboo:

One of my favorite parts of any such place is the gift shop, and theirs is pretty good. I didn't buy a T-shirt or coffee cup, but I plan to on a future visit; we did buy a unicorn cookie for Elyse (also some rock candy for Jessica, but I didn't take a picture of that).
