Here's a beautiful photo of Skull Rock in all its glory. This slide is probably from around 1967. In this first photo, note the fun sign in the upper right for one of the many Kodak "picture spots" that were all around the park. You can also *just* see some of the umbrellas for the eating area (or "muncheteria").
Arrr, here be another cursed picture of the scurvy ol' Pirate Ship!
Just as I was posting this blog entry, it occured to me that I might be able to merge both photos into a nice panorama. Maybe you can use it for a desktop if you have a widescreen display? Anyway, I think that it turned out surprisingly well, all things considered. I only wish it was a night shot, since I loved the skull's glowing green eyes!
