On Sunday we took Amber and Abby over to Asheville to visit the Western North Carolina Nature Center, see the various animals and enjoy a picnic lunch while there. Here are some photos from the visit.

We also were able to see a bear, deer, a red falcon, a horned owl, a bobcat, a cougar, a gray wolf, a red wolf, coyotes, raccoons, a fox, and many other animals while visiting. If you ever get the chance to visit the Western North Carolina Nature Center, I highly recommend it.
