Got a few hours and a camera? Get yourself over to Des Moine's Blank Park Zoo. There you will discover a growing collection of animals from around the world. From sea lions to large cat lions you will find many photo opportunities to impress yourself with subjects both large and small. The zoo (latitude 41.520430N, longitude: 93.624638W) is located close to the DSM airport and is easily accessible by dropping down half a degree of latitude from 42N. After artistically snapping your best photos of the animals you can choose to refuel at the Cheesecake Factory in West Des Moines or nudge back north to the solitude of the 42N latitude.
