I love going to Bearizona! And, what better way than with friends? In a snowstorm! We got there and hopped on a bus for a tour through the open area. The bus is THE way to go. There are no windows so photographic opportunities are much better than when you drive around in a car (with bear and wolf areas requiring closed windows). In a good snowstorm, however, you can count on wind and snowflakes affecting your efforts. So, am happy to tell you that Rick was really up to this challenge! If this blog looks a bit lopsided with his images it is because he managed to get shots that the rest of us just could not get.
We did not stay as long as I would have liked. We were all cold. Even the delicious hot chocolate sold at the concession stand could not warm us up. We will go back. There is a lot of growth happening at Bearizona. A new building is going in that will house a larger gift shop, have interactive areas, a restaurant, and a large room for classes. If you have not visited Bearizona, or been to Williams recently, you might consider adding that to your list of places to go. Highly recommended.
