Tomorrow is my 32nd wedding anniversary. Mr. Lucky and I celebrated a little early. There is a 10,000 acre nature preserve and conservation center a little over an hour away from us. http://www.thewilds.org/ This season they opened up an area for overnight stays in Yurts. We spent last night there. What's a yurt? In this case a fabulously well appointed canvas and wood round tent.
Here is ours, nestled in amongst the trees. How about a look inside?
This doorway led to a bathroom.
Window had no glass, only screening.
What was our view from our Yurt?
Much more impressive in real life. A picture does not do it justice.
Before leaving this morning we went on a 2-1/2 hour open bus tour of about 1000 of the 10,000 acres.
Animals roamed free within vast pasturelands.
Giraffes, rhinos, Przewalskis wild horses, antelopes, zebras, etc.
Indo-Chinese Sika deer
Cheetahs, wild African dogs and rare dholes were housed in another part of the preserve away from the prey animals. The cheetah's inclosure had a sign that I absolutely loved!
All in all a memorable anniversary. I'd love to go back and do it all again!
