Sedgwick County Zoo 2022

Hey Friends,

This is Odie checking with you! I hope you are doing well.  We are doing great here in Ohio. We are already in the midst of great revival near home. I am sure you will get a full report later.

Today we are rewinding to Wichita, Kansas, for this post. I promised to tell you about some of my Kansas fun. My faithful readers know Mom and I love visiting the zoo whenever we get the chance. We try to squeeze in a visit to squeeze a trip to Sedgwick County Zoo every year or two.

The weather was perfect for our annual zoo trip. The weather man forecasted 106 for the day that we scheduled for the zoo. Extreme heat is a given for Wichita. We were prepped and ready for a fun day!

Aunt Karen joined us for the 2022 adventure. We were thrilled to spend a few hours with her. It is always great to add to our list of memories with her!

Here are the pictures that Mom and I snapped at the zoo. Mom took some great shots. She kept telling me we have already photographed this animal every year. I was determined to get pictures for our blog readers. 

I enjoy the elephant exhibit at Sedgwick County Zoo. You can tell the people in charge focus on the elephants.

As You can tell, most of the animals were ready for a nap. 

I love my Mama!

We went early before the heat of the day. It really was not too terrible. The company was great!

I had a rough time trying to get pictures. My focus was on driving the scooter that I had rented. This scooter was more like a tank. Thankfully I made it through the day without killing anyone. I also did not have any significant accidents.

I really like seeing all of the beautiful birds. They were very vocal that day.

The Orangutans were active. I think they were our favorite animals of the day.

There you have our 2022 Sedgwick County Zoo trip. We only spent three hours there, but they were great! We were able to see most of the animals during that time.

Here is a tip if you are planning a Sedgwick County Zoo visit this summer. They are offering Twilight Tuesday. Where the zoo is open later on Tuesdays. The admission price was drastically reduced! I believe it was $3 a person. Stroller and regular wheelchair rentals were offered for a reasonable price.

I am adding this tidbit for my memory's sake. In 2022 the scooter rental was $25 plus tax. $30 plus tax for a scooter with a canopy.

Thanks for coming to the zoo today. I hope you were able to stay cool! I suggest this zoo to everyone interested. We give it five stars! Mom and I look forward to our next zoo trip. You will hear about it here.

2022 Columbus Zoo Trip

Hey Friends,

This is Odie checking in from Ohio. I hope all of you are doing well. I am doing good here at home. Today I am sharing a glimpse into my fun Saturday a couple weeks ago. I was invited to join a group of my friends on a visit to Columbus Zoo. 

Thanks to Sis. Debbie Roberts for inviting me to spend the day with her family! I was thrilled to go to one of my favorite zoos again! The weather was beautiful and we had a great day. I missed Mom; she is my zoo buddy! Maybe Mom and I will get to visit a zoo somewhere together this year.

Here are some pictures from our day. I took most of these pictures. A few came from Emily Burris. I hope you enjoy my 2022 Columbus Zoo Trip. I think the gorillas and giraffes were my favorite animals of the day. 

My dear friend Emily Burris. We had a blast together.

It was wonderful to see the zoo through Eden and Joel's eyes. They loved petting the Stingrays.

Weston was very good on his first zoo trip.

Thank you to Emily and Nathan for their help with my wheelchair and for letting me ride with them to the zoo.

The Penguins are one of my favorite animals.

That concludes my 2022 Columbus Zoo Trip. I highly recommend the Columbus, Ohio Zoo. Thanks for visiting with me.
