    • thank you tracy. spending 2 days and a night in the park weren’t enough. i guess i need to haul my family back there again for another adventure.

  1. These monkeys always make me laugh. Their noses give them a very serious demeanor. This is a nice shot of them. I keep expecting him to talk like Jimmy Durante! πŸ™‚

    • it was captivating to look at them and their prominent noses up close while they mingled around us at a safe distance. yes, i was already mentally prepared for him to croon his way ala jimmy but they were really quiet as if trying not to disturb us.
