The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open year round. My professional capacities took me there last week, late in the day. It was chilly and damp, apparently not fit for man nor beast; but your humble hostess persevered--at least to the elephant house.
Walking through the empty zoo proved spectacularly eerie. The music and soundtrack they pipe through the place made it all that much more haunting.
This tiny sampling will not do the event justice, but it was all I could manage given my time and electronic recording constraints.
