Frontierland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
I typically spend a lot of time over in Frontierland when I am in the Magic Kingdom. I mean who wouldn’t, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Liberty Belle and Tom Sawyer Island! What is there not to like?
I also think I’m drawn to that area because it is one of the few places where there are still trees. I’ve noticed the decline in the landscaping around the parks over the years. There used to be more trees. Now I feel Disney is sacrificing those elements that made the parks feel less like a concrete amusement park in order to cram in more people. One of the memories I have of my first visit in 1973 was the topiaries around the hub in front of the castle. Can you imagine Disney blocking the view today?

Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
To celebrate Halloween I am going to re-post one of my favorite images from the Magic Kingdom during the Halloween season. This is Lady Carlotta, who comes out from the Haunted Mansion to entertain us mortals during special events…
midday, outside work
I went for another walk around the building at work yesterday. I could easily get used to this weather. I think I need to find the right temperate zone that has this weather all year long…
Buttermilk Falls Sate Park
This section of the gorge trail at Buttermilk Falls State Park had been clogged with fallen trees. There were sections of the trunks lodged in the creek after they passed the waterfall. I didn’t like how the arrangement ruined the composition (IMO) and I haven’t photographed this section in a couple of visits. I was quite happy to see everything was back to normal when I walked the trail a few weeks ago. Having the fallen leaves scattered on both sides of the gorge really punctuated the feeling of autumn for me…
