Bears and Otters

After a nice hike on the Grandfather Trail, the clouds rolled in and the rain started to fall.  Since it always rains when I go camping, I have learned to make the best of it!

I decided to head to the Animal Habitats to see what creatures were out and about.  The good news is that the rain caused almost all of the tourists to head inside or back into their cars, leaving the Animal Habitats virtually croud free.

Shaking off the rain like a big wet dog!
I wish the focus would have been better on this shot!

The rain did not stop the Otters from frolicking about!  I didn't get any great Otter shots, but here are a few.

I hate that freaking zoo. They should dismantle all of that commercial shit on Grandfather Mountain. To HELL with Hugh Morton and his so-called "preservation".
