It was a beautiful day, Saturday. We all piled into the van and rode down to DC to visit the National Zoo. These lovely pink trees were near the entrance. Lots of trees are in bloom right now and the drive down to DC was wonderful. Spring and fall are the most beautiful times of the year here in the DC Metro area. Here is an orangutan at the zoo. He and a partner were crossing above the zoo on these huge towers. There were eight of these towers. (The middle six were electified below the platforms so the orangs didn't get the idea they could climb down and run off.) They were going from one pavillion to another. Probably to get some breakfast. It is amazing how they can hang onto those ropes and just walk or swing along. I was impressed!
