We parked our car outside the entrance and joined the crowd of people waiting to be checked in. As we approached the main sanctuary grounds, we walked past a gift shop as well as a silent auction featuring artwork created by its residents.
As we approached the main area, overhead in the trees were what seemed like miles of enclosed walkways.
These walkways allowed the apes to move freely between their night houses and their large airy enclosures
We walked the grounds and visited the cemetery where their residents spend their final days.
After lunch we drove home through two major rainstorms that washed off the accumulated lovebugs that had stuck to the front of my car. It was another excellent adventure!
