Visiting Adonis

OK, Christmas break is over. Yes, I tool a long one. I had a lot going on as far as work, shopping and the such. It's behind us now. I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas or whatever your holiday is..
 
Christmas Eve I drove to Portage to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to buy a couple of yearly passes. One for a gift to me and one for my grandkids. This is a great place to visit and also to support.
 
It was pretty quiet there. I guess because it was Christmas Eve and also it was snowing pretty heavy. I always make it a point to stop and visit Adonis. He's a really good ambassador for eagles and an example on how some people aren't good people. Adonis was gun shot in 1995 and had to have a full wing amputation. He's fully recovered and now lives the semi-retired life at AWCC.
 The moose weren't too excited about anything. I think they were a little mad because the reindeer were getting all of the attention because of that Santa thing.
 Musk Ox are a cool looking animal. They always walk so slow but when they run, don't get in the way.
Again, I hope your Christmas was a good one.

What a wonderful place to spend a little time on Christmas Eve. Adonis is beautiful. Glad to know he has survived all these years with such loving care.

Happiest of holidays to you!
