Daily Photo Tour - Rancho del Zocalo Restaurant

The first time I ate at this restaurant I was five years old. I had gone to Disneyland with my parents and grandma. The whole lunch, I kept complaining how I wanted to ride the "train ride" (Thunder Mountain). My parents kept saying I wouldn't like it. I told them that I would. After a long lunch, and a couple gnarly burritos, I ended up getting my wish. I remember diving in and out of the tunnels, crying my eyes out. I just wanted the thing to end, while at the same time being upset that I was the one that pushed for this to happen. I always wondered what had shifted their thinking. My incessant nagging, or those wicked burritos. I blame it on the burritos.

A Peaceful Cantina

The loving dining area. Very, very cool lighting in here. It is always quiet and peaceful here at night. Unless it is Grad Night, then it becomes a Salsa Dancer's Paradise.

Mi Casa es su Casa

Being at the park late has its advantages. Being at the park after its closed, even better. Just be prepared to leave when the security guards finally get to where you're at after sweeping the other areas of the park! The lighting here is amazing. There is no way you could capture all the ranges of light with a single exposure. Thank you HDR! I usually don't do pictures at a completely perpendicular angle, but this seemed to be appropriate.
