A Convention in Reno - Day 5

June 27, 2018.  65 miles, 4 on dirt.   Today, we went to the Animal Ark, a wildlife sanctuary for injured, orphaned animals and birds.   Bears, bobcats, lynx, mountain lion, and birds make up the population.   This bear was found orphaned, weighed 14 lb, nearly frozen when rescued.  His ears were frostbitten and fell off.   Today he is 240 lb and very active.  Fascinating story on how they fatten up, stop eating and hibernate, even here in captivity.  Hibernate from October to March, not a peep. Fun to watch him play with a tether ball.

That was my only good animal picture, the big cats were all lazing in the shade and didn't show up very well in the pictures.

We drove past an enormous building, Amazon Fulfilment Center, now I know where my packages come from.

Dropped the ladies off at the Fashion T and us menfolk went to the Auto Museum.  Speedsters caught my eye,,,,

 Dig this Rolls Royce,,,,

Have to throw in this one sculpture,  since this is the home of the Reno Air Races.

That's it, all the news that is fit to print.    zzzzzzzzzzz.

Who knew bears love tether ball?! Maybe we could install tether ball in front of the cabin next summer and watch some good matches.
