A few months ago, I got together with some awesome flickr friends of mine and visited the Enchanted Forest in search of some photographic opportunities and some quality geek out time. It’s so fun to get together with folks that have the same passion as you do. Whatever your passion, I hope you find like-minded people to share it with cause it’s really doesn’t get better than that.

The day was rainy and overcast. We found the Forest to be a bit odd and sad. It’s an unusual place cause it recreated a lot of Disneyesque fairy tales without the actual characters. Like the seven dwarfs all had slightly different names due to Disney’s copyright. Some parts of it were fairly run down but some held up ok.

I visited there as a child and loved it. It’s amazing how my perspective of the Enchanted Forest change from child to adult. To experience something, as an adult, that you held in your mind as a glorious place, as a child, means it looses a bit of it’s luster.

Still, it was fun. The rides were great, the photo ops were all around. What more could we ask for?
