These are some photos I took back in June while visiting The Wild Animal Sanctuary, in Keenesburg, Colorado. Pretty local, it's about a half hour drive from me. Please check out their website by clicking the highlighted name, they're doing amazing things for endangered, abused, and abandoned larger predators.
It was a hot, dry day with hardly any breeze. Everyone was trying to snooze in the shade. This was one of the wolf dens. I wasn't anywhere near close to any of these animals, my camera has an awesome zoom feature.
Almost everyone made it to the shade before siesta time kicked in.
Some decided to go for a dip.
...or to catch what little breeze there was.
And others decided to snooze belly up.
