    Hi folks!

    I finally got my corrupted photo card to upload the photos taken from our trip to Marceline last year on May 6th, 2004.

                Walt Disney Municipal Park

                The park's sign:

                The Midget Autopia was relocated to this park as a gift from Walt. It has since been removed, but the track's path and the queue area still remain:

                A close-up of the dedication plaque:

                  The Lamplighter Inn

                  This motel has 13 wonderful and "quaint" rooms:

                  Our room was very cozy with a lot of country decor. Donald Duck comic books were for sale at the motel's front desk for only 50 cents each. I liked the one I bought so much, the manager let me pick out some more as a "welcoming gift".

                      The Walt Disney Hometown Museum

                      No photos were allowed inside the museum, but the artifacts were incredible. And the volunteer curators are very informative and friendly. But, I was able to get a photo outside with a couple stuffed friends:

                        The Dreaming Tree

                        Approaching the beauty of the boyhood farm:

                        A close-up of the sign:

                        Mickey goes for a climb:

                        Daydreaming just like Walt:

                        I could sit there all day:

                        Looking up into the heavens:

                        This tree is a splendorous sight to behold. The pictures don't do her justice. I would love to visit her many times throughout my life, but according to the museum staff, she's dying, and isn't expected to be around much longer. :crybye: She's well over 100 years old, and has suffered severe lightning damage. I brought home a leaf she had dropped while I sat there. I will always remember her fondly. :gladsad:
