Alli took me there as a present for defending my PhD thesis. It was excellent! Did you guys do the monorail thing, going above all the moose?

Do they have an exhibit on moss and lichen? I imagine a big outdoor area of rocks where the moss and lichen can spread and roam and mate and decompose the rocks and hide the gnomes, etc., without herds of destructive orienteers trampling them? Do we even know what moss looks like in a pristine un-O'ed environment? Do you ever go to a quiet far-from-the-city forest place at night and here the songs of the lichen? Do the songs turn to lichen screams when confined in a zoo?

And what about the chanterelles?

We did the gondola safari, that was probably my favorite part. Lukas protested as we stepped onto it and didn't seem happy at all, I thought maybe he was scared of yet another form of transportation. After about three minutes of trying in vain to get him interested in anything (mostly birds, his favorite) he was asleep on my lap (that hasn't happened in months!) so I guess he was actually just really, really tired.

Chanterelles are gross.
