Space Mountain

September 8, 2009

As we know, only the best ride at Disneyland.

So, in commemoration of starting my new job, I present some gorgeous HiRISE images of Mars (many more of which are available here), and the Space Mountain theme song! (By composer Michael Giacchino, who has scored several Pixar and J. J. Abrams movies.)
