From July 17 1968 comes this pair of stereo views of Frontierland. No wiggle-vision this time, but stay tuned for those!
"Slurry" is the word that comes to mind... the smooth, color-infused concrete used to pave the various lands. I'm not sure when they switched from ordinary blacktop (or whatever), but the reddish color is particularly noticeable here in these morning photos. Hey, there's Davy Crockett's Frontier Arcade!
Right next door to the Arcade is the Pendleton Woolen Mills store. In July I probably wouldn't be too interested in wool goods, but once things start to get chilly, I'd be interested in a nice warm woolen coat, or maybe a colorful blanket (so that I can get rid of that embarrassing Snuggie). Or even some of those old-fashioned wool "long johns" that prospectors were so fond of, in spite of their itchy factor of 12.
