We were driving through Colorado one day when we came across all these letters that spelled out “Colorado Gators”
Oh my God! I’d totally forgotten getting those discount Colorado Gator tickets back at the UFO Watchtower.
There were signs for this place for miles. My favorites were the traincar art
and the broke-down truck
This alligator pointed us in the right direction
The alligator farm offered a lot of options.
alligators, fresh fish, and canoe rentals. Canoeing in alligator-infested water would be soooo exciting!
Despite all the signs encouraging us to come to the alligator farm, the no tresspassing sings made me question whether or not we should be there.
but we went anyways
I dropped Dora off in the unloading zone
Then tried to find a place to park.
At first I thought parking was gonna be an issue since they wouldn’t even let me park in front of their abandoned train car
but they had plenty of parking elsewhere I saw later on
While no one came to the alligator farm in a hellicopter like the sign suggested
they did show up in golf carts
I finally found a parking spot
next to this peacock
I started to get a little scared when I saw signs like this one
and this one
which was posted in front of a double-wide with fake swamp painted on it.
Was is just me or did this farm smell like crap?
Oh, okay. It wasn’t just me.
On way to the entrance, we saw this sign
As it turns out, the “troll” is a goat
We saw this sign, so we decided to cross the bridge. I just LOVE donkeys!
They were all playing on the animal playground
I felt sorry for this little donkey, who was too fat to fit through the tire tunnel of fun
When we left the playground, this sign pointed us to the alligator farm entrance
After I said the pledge of alliegance, I realized how parched I was and drank some of the water they provided
Thank God I bought those discount tickets at the UFO place, cuz it would have cost me and Dora $18.75 to get in!
We didn’t have enough cash to buy gator chow, but I had something in my pocket I could feed them anyways.
I really wish I’d seen this sign before I went in. My alligator shirt in the car that would have gotten me in for FREE!
I also learned from this sign that they had alligator wrestling classes (but they were $100 unfortunately) and allowed pets.
they weren’t kidding about the wrestling
or the pets!
All that water I drank made me have to pee real bad
Their bathroom — AMAZING!!!!
And it came with reading material,
which was great, cuz I got all caught up on world events
When I came out of the bathroom, I was a little distressed by this sign
Not only had I just used the men’s bathroom, but this place really was dangerous!
