Colorado Gators

Believe it or not, there's an alligator park in Colorado - it's called Colorado Gators, and it's situated on hot springs near the Great Sand Dunes National Park. It's the place where my old D40X finally stopped working - by the end of the visit the shutter motor was all be finished and it couldn't expose anything properly. So these are the last shots it ever took!
Of course, we had to visit it with the grandkids, and we all loved it. They even got to hold a small alligator!
They've even got a few rare albino alligators.

  4. How fun for your grandkids! Yes, they have a place called "Reptile Gardens" outside of Rapid City, SD that also has gators.

  7. RIP for your camera! It did good on its last gasp. What a surprise to know this place existed ... Had no idea. But you know .... Florida ... Bring the grands next winter, forget Disney World (ha ha ) and take them to see gators in the wild!
