Crown Valley Tiger Sanctuary

A few weeks ago, a friend took me to the Crown Valley Tiger Sanctuary in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. The sanctuary has one lion, Alexis. She looks meaner than she is. I caught her mid-yawn that looks more like mid-growl, but she mostly ignored us and napped during our tour.

Several of the tigers were also out, though they were sleepy, and too close to the bars to get anything great.

After the Tiger Sanctuary, we made our way to the Crown Valley Brewery for lunch and a tasty hard cider. The scenery on our way to and from the sanctuary was beautiful.

We ended up on some never-ending back roads and discovered a few barns along the way as well.
