Woodland Park Zoo: Orangutan or Jedi Knight?

I spent a morning at Woodland Park Zoo on my last day in Seattle last summer. It was a nice way to wind down that leg of my vacation as I’m the kind of traveler who likes to see everything and do everything so I tend to wear myself out. A leisurely stroll through a zoo is a nice remedy. Of all the sites and all the animals there though, this guy was probably my favorite. Wrapped up in some muslin and crossing a rickety bridge he kind of reminded me of something you’d see in Star Wars.
