DDW Pic 166. Expedition Everest
Expedition Everest - Top of the Drop
Here is another fun "on-ride" shot from one of my favorite attractions at Animal Kingdom. Last month I posted a picture from the spot on Expedition Everest where the train stops and is about to drop backwards into the mountain. This picture is from the same ride, but at the top of the 80 foot climactic drop as the coaster comes hurdling out of the mountain. You can see the Asian village at the lower right and the Tree of Life poking up above the horizon. I took this picture for several reasons. First, I wanted to see if I could get a clear shot from the top of the drop, and second I wanted to give those of you who would never brave Everest (like my mom and dad) a feel for what it looks like to be on the attraction. Incidentally, Expedition Everest is the tallest mountain in the state of Florida at nearly 200 feet.
