Rafter's Ridge
Back and better than ever, but not really.
About this creation
Four-odd weeks into the worst college quarter yet, and where do I want to be? Disneyland, gents. Happiest place on earth.

I stop by Flickr and browse through the Disneyland photos to help maintain my sanity and keep me from putting a shotgun in my mouth. I land on a slew of pictures of the Grizzly River Run in the California Adventure "It's not as lame as it sounds" Park. Inspiration strikes. This could be Lego-mogrified, I think to myself. Look at that. Isn't it pretty?

So I hit the bricks. This was the result: a ridge somewhere in the northern California wilderness, complete with tumbling waterfall and quasi-hippie river guides. Enjoy.



Thanks for your time.

Nice one, Alex! Sorry I missed it when it first came out. I'm personally a HUGE fan of theme park landscaping (in fact my own basement has been sculpted to look like a cave, believe it or not). It's a match made in Heaven for LEGO...I mean Pirates of the Carribean, Indiana Jones, Jurrasic Park, etc. I'd love to see you do some others one of these days, and throw in some of that sweet lighting you use - total win just waiting to happen!

Wow! I don't even know where to start. MOCs like this one really separate the ametures from the pros when it comes to Lego building. The entire MOC sends off a "POW"! right in your face. It's visually stunning as well as very detailed. Aside from the fantastic buildings and the excellent rock formations, I love the dock/bridge that spans the rapids. Little details like the paddler on the raft and the figs in action above add to the overall quality. This is truly an outstanding creation. I'd hate to see it taken apart. Excellent!

After eleven some odd years of post-secondary, I am coming to the end - 3-weeks to go. Just so you know there is light at the end of the tunnel, and not the one that results from eating 3" of 00. Lee.

Not to dump on your favorite place (by which I mean, of course, that I'm about to dump on your favorite place), but my personal opinion of Disneyland is that it's probably caused more suicides than it's prevented. Lego, now... that's a life and sanity saver. Unquestionably.
