Spent mother's day with the kids at the NW Trek in Eatonville, WA. It happened to be the sunniest/warmest day we've had so far this year but there were some good photo ops and not every animal was hiding in the shade. The park has a tram that rides you through the fields and there are plenty of opportunities to hang the camera out the window and shoot as you're moving by. I wished they stopped/slowed down more but it's not really designed for photographers. I actually got a wee bit motion sick from sitting backwards while moving forward and trying to look through the view finder of the camera the whole time. Still a fun trip though if you're in the area. Comments and critique welcomed!

Very nice. I lived on the left coast in the 1970's working for DOE. Wish I was back there now.

Super shooting. The Big Horn Sheep group shot is a prize among a collection of very nice photos. The Porcupine is one of the most pleasantly playful photos going.

not to threadjack, just FYI, check out NWTrek website, they do early morning photography only tours where they go slow and take the doors and windows out of the tram and go real slow so you can get shots, it's only on specific days, schedule is on the site. With that said, nice shots, love that place.
