I'll start today's post with this neat photo taken from the upper branches of the Swiss Family Treehouse! This was certainly a man-eating tree, which might explain the strange (and cool) red leaves.
Anyway, what a beautiful view. In the distance we can see that the Christmas star is atop the Matterhorn; wasn't there some rumor that a new improved star was to make its appearance a year or so ago? So much for rumors.
Down below is the entrance to the Jungle Cruise with its distinctive sign, probably made from the skin of an endangered animal.
Next is a photo - not a very good photo - looking toward one of the huts; you can't really see it, but the pipe organ (source of the "Swisskapolka") is in this hut. I love the way bits and pieces of the shipwreck are incorporated into the structure. Some say that when you hold the tree to your ear, you'll hear the ocean!
