Today we're in Frontierland! It's rootin', but only a little tootin'.
This first picture, from June 1960, is fascinating to me. Nature's Wonderland had only just opened, and apparently not everything was completely ready to go. As you can see, the area known as "Bear Country", seen from the dramatic perspective of the trestle bridge over the water, has only one measly bear!
Here's a photo from 1972 for comparison. Six bears! SIX! I've noticed that this particular scene does have a tendency to change over the years.
And how about this picture? A beauty (also from June 1960) of Cascade Peak when all of the falls were really roaring. Years later, the top cascade was sometimes turned off, and the impressive flow of water was reduced on the others. I'm sure the massive pumps cost a lot to run. I love the canoe, and just about everything else about this photo!
