Australia 2006- Monarto Park

Fall foliage in Adelaide. Paths through the forest were colorful and crisp under foot.
My trip to Australia in 2006 was a little bit different. Lots of zoos, parks, animals, etc. Like these ring tailed kangeroos in Monarto Park.
And lions, lionesses. These were so neat, they'd follow the meat truck at dinner time. They knew who was carrying their steaks.

Giraffes. The park keepers put big limbs of their favorite trees on a post and the giraffes would all gather around, reaching up or standing on hind legs to get to the limbs, just like they would in the wild.
