Our first sighting of the Ark Encounter sign:
First sighting of the actual Ark.
See it there in the background? Past Tabitha's head.
Getting ready to get on the shuttle to the Ark.
This shuttle was the one that left right before ours.
Finally beginning to understand the enormity of the Ark.
In we go.
No, it isn't just filled with animals. There are samples of what the animals may have been housed it, with lots of different kinds of animals; however, there are a lot of exhibits too.
Quite a few interactive exhibits for children too.
Thoughts on how they may have fed the animals.
Looking at the interactive display that contemplates a few different ways there would have been lighting in the ark.
We headed out of the ark to the buffet restaurant next door for lunch.
Then back to where we left off in the ark.
The dangers of those little tiny arks pictured in children's storybooks.
A look at what the living quarters for Noah's family might have looked like.
Thoughts on how Noah and his family may have grown food on the ark.
More exhibits with theories of what happened during and after the flood. From a creationist perspective.
I soooo want the top timeline pictured below. They do actually sell it in the store.
The one door.
Just as the Ark only had one door, there is only one way to God, through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. See the cross on the door?
Yes, there were even some live animals on this Ark.
Here's the porcupine. There were also some alpacas and some sort of lizard.
Walking past the gardens on the way to the Ararat Ridge Zoo.
I LOVE those huge flower pots. Wish I had gotten a better shot of them.
Last view of the Ark Encounter.
Sorry there are so many pictures (though I think I did a good job narrowing them down seeing as I took over 1600 pictures during our three day vacation.
I hope you took the time to look at them. The Ark Encounter really is an amazing place that affirms God's truths.
No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.
