Unlit Lights at the Oregon Zoo
in Washington Park
Portland, Oregon

It wouldn't be the holidays in Portland without a visit to the Oregon Zoo's annual winter festival, ZooLights. As you walk around the zoo, you'll see a dazzling display of more than million and a half lights, and experience your zoo in a whole new light. In addition to visiting elephants, penguins and other animals, you can ride the popular lighted train and enjoy dinner from a variety of food carts. Little ones may want to ride the carousel, and Santa will be available for photos each night. [from the oregon zoo's website]

A line of reindeer were outlined along the entry path. One of them (perhaps named Rudolph) had a big red nose.

A large peacock stood on a roof. Sadly the peacock was a bit larger than its frame.
