If you were planning on taking the kids to the unveiling of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's Encounter Africa exhibit today, your plans have changed.

The exhibit won't open until Friday because the weather today is too nippy for the African elephants to come outside. The much-celebrated pachyderms will be among the animals making a special appearance Friday during the exhibit's ribbon-cutting.
