Today I'll be sharing three photos from Nature's Wonderland. I can't get enough images of this classic attraction! The first photo shows "bear country" (the original slide was pretty dark, and it got grainy when I lightened it). Here's what the spiel described:
"We're comin' into Bear Country now, folks, and while we're crossin' the old trestle yuh gotta sit real still. No tellin' how long she's gonna last! Yuh know, bears are one of the most playful animals there is. Lazy, too! All they wanna do is lay around, 'n' scratch, 'n' fish, 'n' swim...that is, when they ain't sleepin'!"
I don't remember seeing this scene with the bobcat in the attraction, wonder where it was exactly? There's no mention of it when you listen to the spiel. Wasn't there another bobcat that was stuck at the top of a saguaro (threatened by wild pigs)? Those silly owls crack me up!
"Say, ever hear of the Devil's Paint Pots? Real mystery of the desert. Bubblin' pots of mud in all kinds of colors. This is geyser country, too. Uh-oh! There she blows! Sure glad you all brought yer raincoats! But look out now! We never know when she's gonna go off. That's why we call 'er Ol' UNfaithful. LOOK OUT NOW! You folks in them last cars be ready-- she's a-threatenin' agin!"
