San Diego

For Labor Day weekend Stephanie came out to Arizona. Originally we were going to go camping in Sedona, however Arizona was seeing severe thunderstorms so we headed to California.

Our first stop in San Diego was at the San Diego Zoo. After a long summer in Phoenix, I must say that San Diego has beatiful weather

2013-09-01 The San Diego Zoo is very proud of their panda bears. I know they are hard to raise in captivity, however I've seen a lot of them. And they are all eating, all day long. Does not help that bears are carnivores, and the panda's digestive tract hasn't increased in size to help with eating bamboo.
