What a beautiful December day this was, way back in '69. The park looks moderately busy, from what we can see here. Tom Sawyer Island, the Columbia, and several rafts are visible. Gramps smokes his cigarette, making him cool like James Dean. The glossy leaves of the magnolia tree evoke the deep south, which is appropriate considering our proximity to New Orleans Square.
A second picture taken from just a bit further back, and looking a bit more eastward, shows the mighty Mark Twain, which we have never seen before ever.
