For all the years I’ve been heading to Washington to visit family, I can’t believe I (the super duper animal lover) was the only one in my family not to visit the Olympic Game Farm. Not only is there a pretty incredible variety of animals in this little park, you can feed them while driving your car through it! Hello! This is a Chelsea dream come true! Have you ever gotten to feed a Yak? Or a buffalo? How about a BABY buffalo?! I knew I was in for a treat when the attendant tells you to “just keep moving” when you get to the Elk/Buffalo enclosure. And let me tell you, those Elk are just as tall as our Suburban!
I had the pleasure of going in the Spring after all sorts of babies had been born. I mean, come on! All baby animals are just plain cute. A lot of these animals are rescued from bad situations which makes me extra happy to see them roaming this beautiful place. Many of the bears are retired from show business and will sit back and give you a little wave for their treat too. Talk about cuteness overload! If only we could hug them…
For more information on this super fun game farm, head on over to their website here. My only recommendation is… get a car wash soon after. Hehehe.
I’ve never had a deer so happy to see me!

Hungry buffalo!! I couldn’t believe they walked right up to our car!
Uh oh. There’s a yak in the road…
Hungry yak! Look at those teeth! He has a bit of an underbite going on there…
Isn’t this the sweetest face?!
This guy trotted after us as we drove away!
Uh oh. Another yak on the road…
Home on the range. Not a bad place to be living.
