Another great update, Allyson! I love your pictures.

Devine is one of my favorite things about AK. I have a million pictures of her but your second one was my favorite of all time!

So beautiful!

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the CS at Yak and Yeti. We actually have ADRs for the TS in October, but hopefully the food will be the same. How did you like the Mango pie? We're still trying to decide what DH should have for dessert since he can't have what he really wanted (the brownie sundae) because it has nuts in it.

Hi Allyson,
Loving the TR so far, just a shame about the weather, hopefully it clears up soon!
We have ADRs for Yak and Yeti, after hearing your review, I'm really looking forward to it!

Allyson! I'm all caught up and I have to say your pictures are just wonderful! You did a great job of capturing the beauty and uniqueness of AK. I just love it there!

And by the way, you are my hero as well, I will NEVER get on Expedition Everest - it scares the crap out of me! You are so BRAVE!!!

Hi Allyson! SO glad you got a non-rain morning anyhow! It sounds like you had a great time at AK on your own. So does this mean you opted against checking out the surgeries at conservation station? Or did I miss something? Time will tell, I suppose. Cause time is a stupid tattletale!

I would love to try Yak & Yeti sometime except that they have no vegetarian food - except the desserts, I guess. I'm glad you got to try it anyhow! How was that pie? It sounds so unusual!

I sure wish people would lay off feeding the wildlife - bad for the animals, bad for us - obnoxious birds are the last thing I want on vacation. Well, maybe not the LAST thing.....

So what's this mysterious, never-heretofore-seen show?

Your detail shots are just awesome! I think I have said it before, but I just love the theming of AK!
I think there were umbrellas on the tables, I'm about positive of it. I remember on your report how much you love the signs and things at AK!

Yes do really take it all in. So much detail and effort went into creating AK. It really is a neat place to explore slowly.

Mango pie was a delight if you like mango! It had a sweet shortbread crust, I enjoyed it!

No veggie options at all? Well that is too bad. I thought most places had at least one. Maybe the TS would have something. The pie was really tasty, I
liked it alot!

I'll fill you in, no Conservation Station at all. You know even solo with all the time in the world, so you think, you still can't really do it all. There were just some things on my list I didn't get to. Mostly because I'd be doing one thing and think "I just want to keep doing this" or "I don't really feel like doing that right now after all". It's all good though!

Allyson,
No veggie food at all - at least according to the menus on allears. It seems weird because, you know, it really COULD be. Maybe they'll make exclusions on things at the table service - who knows. I don't usually like to make a big deal, but it is frustrating when there is just nothing at a place.

I hear ya on not getting to everything. It's not possible in one trip, even when you don't have anyone else to worry about. Savoring the moment is what it's about, even if it doesn't match expectations. Conservation Station can sure take a chunk of time out of a day, too. Just getting to and from, even!

Congrats on your training going well. I'm having a slight issue, but heading out for 3 today and 4 on Saturday, I think! We'll be there before we know it. I forget - where are y'all staying for marathon weekend?

Okay so I can't remember the exact order of things as I told you. I do remember it was HOT. Really HOT. So when I was over by the Tusker House I grabbed a Frozen Lemonade. It hit the spot. I watched a dancing/drumming show over that way for a short bit, it was cute when they had guests trying to do the moves.

I decided to do the trail. I had never done this one before. I think now having done both I like the one with the Gorillas better. This time I did the Maharajah, last time I did the Pangani, I get them so confused. But I like the Gorilla one better.

Here are some photos from the Maharajah Trail that I took:





The part with the bats was probably my favorite. They are pretty unique and amazing creatures!




More of my pretending to be an artsy photographer






Trail done I noticed that a show I had never seen was just starting. It was, the bird show! I have never seen this show before, Flights of Wonder. I went in and was easily able to get a seat. And you know what? This is a good show! Aside from the hokey female host I liked it all. The male host was fine but she was supposed to play the sort of dopey sidekick and I found her most annoying. But the birds are the real stars and they were beautiful. I really liked this show and would recommend you find a way to fit it into your next AK visit. I didn't take any pictures however as I was just enjoying watching and didn't want to be behind a camera.

Now I decided to head down towards the FOTLK area. I was close to melting at this point. It was really humid. Ick. You know how you feel when you have like that coating of sweat all over you? That is how I felt. I knew my day would be ending soon and I'd head back to Pop for a break. I walked all the way over though because I wanted to see what characters were out down there.

Next up, the one and only time I was made to feel uncomfortable for being by myself.....
