The day we went to Hogle Zoo was wet and cold. We decided it'd be worth it because they always say the cats are more active when it's cold... they weren't.
Pros of going that day: We had the zoo basically to ourselves. It wasn't hot.
Cons: It was cold! Kaylee and I looked pretty dorky (the difference in weather between our house and the zoo was pretty big. We're dressed for rain, cold, and the hot sun all at once... yes, I am wearing a raincoat with a scarf.).
Bundled up and ready to see some animals
