Not sure the replacement is much healthier than the other one, but I ask you, “Are you an oak man?”

Treetop Trail @ MN Zoo ✅

Hit the early “member’s hour,” but I think all suburban moms must have memberships now. My take after one quick loop around: it’s very scenic, but large sections have no animals and I’m not sure they have all the signage up yet. Do heed the signs that warn of static shocks, though. Love the new section close to the bison and can’t wait for the prairie dogs to return (sign said they will be back).

Broke in the new hiking shoes

A hilly 10K+ around Afton State Park with deer, a rabbit, a snake, some tiny frogs, a hawk and a bunch of other birds that Merlin said were there (but I didn’t visually see), including cardinals, crows, cedar waxwings, goldfinches, house wrens, mourning doves, blue jays, red-bellied & downy woodpeckers, eastern wood-pewees, wood thrushes, sparrows and eastern kingbirds.
