St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show

Every year my wife and I travel to Como Zoo Conservatory in St. Paul in the dead of winter to take a breath of the tropics. The morning temp started at -5 below zero and by noon we were in a tropic rainforest! An added benefit was the St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show, camera in hand we took pictures of some of our favorite orchids on display at this judged show.
