Our first stop along the way to California was at the Flying J rest-stop in Scipio, UT. To our great delight, just outside the gas station was a make-shift petting zoo with an odd assortment of animals. You know, the regular... a few goats, some baby sheep, an ostrich, an ornery zebra, and a fuzzy alpaca.
Recognizing that the petting zoo was a bit, um, unkempt, I kept a healthy distance from the animals. Danny, on the other hand, happily reached in to pet the zebra like he would a horse or cow. He quickly learned that even at a petting zoo, zebras don't like to be bothered. Who would have guessed that our adventures would begin so early? Not too many people can say that they were bit by a zebra along the roadside in Southern Utah. (Although we later learned of another person who was recently bit by the ostrich there too.) I'd say the Scipio Zoo is a must-see stop along the way to your destination... but go at your own risk.
Secretly, Danny loved that zebra bite! He wore it like a badge of honor all throughout our trip;)
