The weather this morning was sunny and warm …… until we got to Port Angeles and then we had to put our jumpers on. It’s a lovely small town and on the drive to it we passed a beautiful lake called Crescent Lake. We went to Port Angeles primarily for Twilight purposes (more on the other post).

After doing the Twilight ‘thing’ and on the advice of a lady we had met earlier in the day, we went to visit the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim. Well, what a delight that was. It’s been in operation for over 40 years and for 28 of those years worked exclusively with Walt Disney Studios and many others on features including: ‘The Grizzly Adams Series’, ‘The Incredible Journey’, ‘Charlie, The Lonesome Cougar’ and many more. Most of the animals are now offspring of past animal actors and several others are rescued animals.

Some of the animals they have are Prairie Dogs, Timber Wolves, Tibetan Yaks, Llamas, Zebras, Arctic Foxes, Fallow Deer, Kodiak Bears, Black Bears, American Bison, Roosevelt Elk, African Lions, Bengal Tigers, Siberian Tigers and Cougars.

It was quite an experience because we were able to buy large loaves of bread to feed to some of the animals, mainly the Bison, the Yaks, the Llamas and the Fallow Deer. Because the animals are used to being fed by humans, as soon as they see a car approaching they walk right up to it and if your window is open they will stick their heads right in to get some bread.  I have to say that the Bison have terrible breath!!!!!

Well, Si got his wish at last ……. up close and personal with bears!!

    • Well, we just bought one loaf but we really needed two because we ran out and some of the animals were disappointed! LOL.

  2. Oh this is almost as good as seeing the Twilight world. Look at that cuddly bear and awwww the baby buffalo (or Bison, whatever you want to call it!)! I’m glad the lady told you stop here to see all the wildlife!
