Best Pictures Day 3 -- General Animal Kingdom

There were a lot of really good pictures yesterday; we went to Animal Kingdom. I've never been there before (it opened in the 90s sometime) and wasn't sure what to expect from a zoo with a few rides. It was gorgeous and the rides were fun. We didn't have time to see the shows (next time!) but I could have spent all day  wandering around with my camera.

The entrance to Asia, home of Expedition Everest (a very cool roller coaster that's more fun and not as scary as I expected, given that it went backwards).

They have a nifty "shipwreck" loaded with ropes and all sorts of stuff for the apes to play with.  Thank goodness for zoom lenses!

Everest.

A statue in the line for Kali River Rapids.  It was set up like a shrine...very cool, but not air conditioned (neither was the line for Everest or Kilimanjaro Safari...).

My daily I-promise-I-won't-give-you-an-Elvis-smile picture.  :-)

The Tree of Life.  The whole thing is carved with animals.

Imagine carving this!
