Yesterday, we had a little outing with my mom and the kids at the new Cabela's in my parent's town. Very cool store! I'm not really into the world of hunting and outdoor sports, but this place is amazing.
We had to take some pictures. Joshua was thrilled with this lion behind us. It was posed attacking the nearby water buffalo.
The store also has a fishing department, with large fish covering the walls. The kids like the tunas and the swordfish. We also had to check out all the boats and fishing polls. I was interested to see all the Disney princess fishing and camping equipment.
There was an entire safari section that included this huge elephant and a rhino, along with the lion and several antelope-like animals.
The hunting section had an impressive display of birds, geese and ducks. They also had beautiful display animals for ponds and yards (and probably for target practice).
The center of the store is a two-story mountain covered with animals. It also has two waterfalls and a pond. Under the mountain is a tunnel you can pass through. In the tunnel are three aquariums with interesting fish from Washington state.
The back of the mountain has the cold weather animals, including this sea lion, a musk ox and a polar bear. They also have a desert region with coyotes, prairie dogs and more.
The front of the mountain had waterfalls and this beautiful pond. The kids loved watching the big fish that filled this pond. This region included the elk and mountain goats and more.
I'm sure I took too many pictures, but we were not the only ones with our camera out. Check out additional pictures of the fish, prairie dogs, polar bear, tents, and more on my Facebook album.
