RV Day 8: Memphis Zoo

I debated extensively about the COVID risk for every stop on this trip – for this reason, we have skipped Ashville, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Nashville, and any museums/playgrounds, etc along the way. But, today we decided to go the Memphis Zoo. They impressively publicize the live/real-time numbers of visitors and I have been watching the numbers for a few weeks (as well as the video cams in the popular exhibits) to get a sense of best time of day and day of week for social distancing. So, we arrived before opening and stayed until early afternoon – and it was great! It was scorching hot, so there was barely anyone there, and the zoo was actually enforcing masks for any indoor exhibit. The bonobos were super fun and they had a great selection of animals – including pandas!
