View 143: Top of the World

The view of Disney's Animal Kingdom from Expedition Everest thrill ride in Walt Disney World.

The view of Disney's Animal Kingdom from Expedition Everest thrill ride in Walt Disney World. Nikon D700/28-300VR, 1/250s, f/16, ISO 450, EV -0.3, 28mm focal length.

The view of Disney’s Animal Kingdom while riding Expedition Everest.  Thanks to Disney Imagineers, even I can go to the top of the “world” via a very scenic railroad ride.  The ride gets a little rough at times and there’s a Yeti creature with a habit of ripping apart the tracks.  Such is life when visiting Walt Disney World. 🙂

Things are getting a bit ragged around here lately.  I will be on vacation for the next week.  No, not Walt Disney World this time.  I will have Internet access so look for some updates over the next week.  Watch the Twitter feed (see Follow Me on Twitter in the left sidebar) for comments and photos of my latest adventures.  If you are on Twitter, I invite you to follow me.

    Absolutely stunning! I assume the thrill ride was moving slow enough to get this shot instead of rollercoaster speed lol

    Ugh, I’ve been on that ride and DID NOT LIKE IT! Can’t blame the ride, tho. Hubby and I are simply NOT roller-coaster people and going backwards THAT fast and for THAT long had us wishing we didn’t do it. But, now we can at least say that we DID. So there. 🙂

    Great shot! 🙂

    You Disney folks are making me yearn to go back. Maybe I can bend all of your “ears” one of these days about the best time for someone who works in a school to go. School vacations are nightmares of course, and one-week vacations during the school year are just not an option.

    So how do you choose a spot like North Dakota for a vacation?

    Enjoy your vacation Scott.
    Florida is so much green and blue!
    What colors are North Dakota? Red and blue, perhaps…
