We had the pleasure of joining Emily and the kiddos at the zoo on Tuesday. Hogle Zoo is the largest zoo in Utah and in my opinion, perfectly quaint. The zoo originally resided in Liberty Park (yes, the park we live near) and only housed birds and an elephant. After the elephant kept escaping the zoo to roam about the city, folks decided to find a new home to all the animals. This new home is now at the base of Emigration Canyon (supposedly where the Mormons entered into the Salt Lake Valley). The land was given by the Hogle family... hence the name.
