Yes. This is what you came for. 🙂
Inside the Cockrell Butterfly Center you will find both steamy, and cool relaxing environments. There is plenty of wonder, including plants, flowers, iguanas, and of course butterflies. There is also a large waterfall which provides a nice background audio track as you enjoy the different levels of the exhibit.
The Cockrell Butterfly Center is an awesome place to visit as you will see from the next few sets of photos.
The Sam Houston Monument in Hermann Park is a pretty impressive sight. The area includes a reflecting pool, the bronze sculpture, and several gardens which may or may not include passing butterflies. When the sun is shining, it makes for a great photography spot.
Thank you Daylight Saving Time. I now have an extra hour of sunlight after work so I can take more interesting walks and use the last bits of the sun’s rays to take more interesting photos. Yay!
The Waco Suspension Bridge is a beautiful historic bridge that was first opened in 1870. It was once a toll bridge for stagecoaches, cattle, and humans. The only other way to cross the Brazos River at the time was by ferry. Now the bridge is a pedestrian bridge only, and is full of activity on beautiful, sunny days like today.
After a quick Zoo visit, I still had some more walking energy. My next stop was the Washington Avenue Bridge which spans the Brazos River in Waco.
