Disney never plans anything without a backstory. Disney's Wilderness Lodge is full of stories about the American West. Each of the two large totem poles in the lobby tell a tale from Native American lore. The one pictured below is the Raven totem.
For more information, search for "Jim Korkis Wilderness Lodge totem pole". You will find details to the totem's stories.
Deb will here tomorrow with her view of the Wilderness Lodge Resort lobby.
Tomorrow is the day America celebrates its birthday. It has been 239 years since July 4th, 1776.
One of the greatest foresight's America has had was to create its National Parks to preserve and protect unique natural places within the territories of the United States for the enjoyment of its peoples. Disney pays homage to those national parks and the great lodges found within their borders at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort.
For the next four weeks, Deb and I will be doing some abstract subjects. I did not go photographing specifically for these subjects but found them in my archives when they were proposed. That is the lesson I taught about adding Captions and Metadata to your photo databases and libraries.
We start off with Wood. Not surprisingly there is a lot of wood to be found at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort at Walt Disney World. The entire lobby from the floor to the ceiling is made of wood (as much as our eyes can see anyway). Here are a couple of Big Horn Sheep located on one of the pillars of the lobby. You will find other wildlife wood carvings on the other pillars.
Tomorrow, Deb takes you back in time to the Vikings for her wooden post.
