The tree of life in the center of the park.

Up close, you can see all of the animals carved into the tree.

A shot of one of the cool upside down trees. It’s a replica of a hundred year old Baobab Tree from Africa and looks like a tree growing upside-down. The tree rarely has leaves, so it always looks like the top branches are the roots of the tree.

One of the many waterfalls in the park. (My attempt at fake HDR editing on the shot.)

A view of the Mount Everest rollercoaster ride from across the park.

We were walking along with Russel from the movie Up. It was funny to see how many people knew him and were so excited to see him. If you haven’t seen Up yet, it’s worth the rent.

We were there on the first Friday in March. A little early for spring breaks but the park was packed. Isn’t the country in a “recession”? You wouldn’t think that here.

Pointing the way out.

My sister and I hit Animal Kingdom in Orlando when she came to visit in early March. We thought we’d get rain but lucked out and it was only cloudy most of the day. The weather was perfect. Not hot and sweaty. The lines were long so we used our fast pass for the safari ride. It was a fun day just hanging out and taking pictures.
