James left for Boy Scout camp this morning. Hannah came home from Girl Scout camp yesterday. She was looking for something *fun* to do today since she was an only child.
We drove to the East side of Atlanta and went to the Yellow River Game Ranch. It was our first time there.
Hannah purchase a variety of "animal" snacks when we bought our tickets.
The Yellow River Game Ranch is a 24 acre animal preserve. All of the animals have been rescued and rehabilitated and can not survive out in the wild. There is a mile long trail that takes you around to the different animals.
Hannah was excited to be able to feed the animals.
There were a lot of people there, so the first few animals that we stopped at were not hungry. They had been getting lots of food already. The first animal to seem appreciative of our feeding efforts was a black bear.
Here's a close up of the bear. He was particularly fond of raw peanuts.
The deer were little pigs! They kept eating and eating!
They preferred the corn.
This goat ate cabbage leaves.
Here's an alpaca.
The sheep were quite hungry. They gobbled up cabbage leaves.
Hannah found a new friend.
And another new friend. This one has his own house.
Many of the animal enclosures had "tube" feeding stations.
You drop the food down the tube.
And it lands on a tray.
Most of the bunnies were hiding in the shade, but Hannah found one she could give a carrot to.
Another sweet deer.

This guy wasn't on exhibit, but we enjoyed watching him anyway.
The Yellow River Game Ranch has been around for a LONG time. It was a bit out dated and worn, but we enjoyed the experience. Hannah is already making plans to go back.
