Moody Gardens’ Rainforest Pyramid — We Like It!

Photography | Posted by Jannie on 13 August 2011 @ 11:52 PM 44 Comments


If you’re going to Galveston, TX you might find the rainforest pyramid one cool little spot.


A big spot, actually — 10 stories high.


With room to grow.


We wandered habitats on three levels — floor, water cloud and canopy.


I was totally captivated.

I drank 2 beers and danced with the monkeys who asked to remain unphotographed.


Even saw rain!


Mist too.


Pretty camera-shy birds.


Flying free.


Apparently over 1000 species of tropical flora and fauna call the pyramid home, but I only spotted 999.


REAL butterfly, not photoshopped.

(Both children in this post are real too.)


Much to see and do in Galveston, but the Moody Rainforest was my fave spot.

Highly recommended for all that ails ya.
