|Tiger Statue at Entrance to New Tiger Crossroads Exhibit|
at the Nashville Zoo
Nashville Zoo April 2019
Today I visited the Nashville Zoo to catch up on three of the newest exhibits opened in last couple of years - Tiger Crossroads, Expedition Peru, and Tree Tops Spider Monkeys. Tiger Crossroads was just opened in the last two weeks. I like that the Nashville Zoo is opening "educational" exhibits providing a lot of educational information as part of the exhibit as I think you will be able to see in my photos taken today. The three new exhibits are along the jungle trail and my visit today was limited to the jungle trail.
I managed to take over 100 photos and one mini movie today and present them to you in this gallery. Click the photo or caption to view all the gallery.

I did not have to travel far to visit the Nashville Zoo although Nashville Music City is favored travel destination for many people. In fact, our metro area of two million is welcoming estimated 300,000 National Football League(NFL) fans to the 2019 NFL Draft this week. You can catch the excitement on the NFL Network or ESPN and some ABC stations on your television. Check it out.
After these two blog updates this week, I'll next blog in June as I travel to Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; and East Lansing, Michigan and also ride Amtrak's Cardinal and Blue Water trains.
