I went to Ohio for a few days recently.  It’s surprisingly similar to Michigan, except they have less great lakes and the roads are in better shape.

I ended up spending one day at the Cleveland zoo.  I took some pictures but not as many as I hoped because some animals were a bit camera shy.  You know those signs that zoos have in their garden areas saying what kind of plant it is?  Well, I saw the rarest plant there.  I’ve never seen such a thing before.  I was so shocked I forgot to take a picture of it.  Sticking out of the ground behind a protective fence was the rare “Tall Grass” and the sign that distinguished it.  To think I could have been looking at some rare lily or exotic bush but, instead, I got the rare treat of a glimpse of Tall Grass.

The next Day I went to Cedar Point, which at this point should be handed over to Michigan, considering the majority of people there are from Michigan.  I saw more U of M prizes than Ohio state prizes at the games.  Anyways, an interesting story.  Andrew and I decided to ride in the front seats of the Millennium Force, my favorite coaster.  It was the last ride of the evening and it was getting dark.  While on the ride, we felt thousands of little things hitting us all over.  Turns out it’s a bad idea to ride in the front at night, for when we got off the ride, we were splattered with mosquitoes.  We were the windshield to the Millennium Force!  All the bugs died on impact with our bodies lol.Albino Zebra

The last day we went to a mini zoo/drive-through safari thing.  It was hilarious driving through the safari part.  There were Elk, deer, bison, ad longhorn bulls slobbering all over the van.  I took a picture of the white zebra.  There are only two in the US and they had both of them!  some how, it seems less impressive than a normal zebra…

Sorry for the long post; I will try to keep it shorter for now on!
