Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center

Today, we visited the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center with our friend and co-worker, Candice and Candice. The grizzlies were out early looking for food...

and playing with trash cans. That is why special metal trash cans with handles to open them are located all through the area. This helps keep bears from getting into the trash.

We arrived as they were having wolf pack chat. During this time, staff members get the wolves howling all at once.

The Center is located next to the IMAX and is open 365 days a year. All of the animals are not able to survive in the wild and serve as ambassadors for their wild counterparts.

These young wolves were wide awake this morning and playing hard.
Time for a group shot. Notice the IMAX Theatre in the background.
Nothing like relaxing on a giant teddy bear.

Next, it was off to the museum just across the road and about a half block down.

This used to be the Union Pacific Railroad Station. Would you care to buy a ticket?

As you can see it can sometimes be challenging to get here in a train.

After the museum, it was time to get a bite at the Canyon Street Grill. We were unhappy we couldn't try the extra salad Depressing, whatever that was. Notice the box outlined in red.

Candice took us to see here parents' house. They have quite a view from their front window.

And plenty of windows with a view.
Their house, on the left, is about 7,000 sq feet.
