lions, & tigers, & CHEETAHS ..oh my!


I was inches away from a CHEETAH!


I thoroughly enjoy trips to the zoo, but Jeff topped the ‘traditional’ zoo experience yesterday. He got us passes for the Cheetah Safari at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We stood only feet away when the cheetah ran 70 mph after a stuffed animal and stood inches behind him for a photo opp. [I was terrified]. Only a leash was between us & the wild animal. The trainer said “Come closer! I wouldn’t put you in danger”. Surrrre! Scary, but honestly amazing & unforgettable!


And our San Diego adventure continues… :)
