We got to Minneapolis late on Wednesday and were able to stay with my college girlfriend, Tamara. We had a little time to spend with her in the morning before we hit the road north.
Our first stop before Duluth was the Como Park Conservatory & Zoo.
In the rain forest room Simon got to see a boa constrictor.
Some huge lily pads out front of the conservatory.
The "fake" giraffe's in the zoo.
And the real ones! 15+ foot high.
