Frontierland is the largest "land" at Disneyland, so I guess it only stands to reason that there would be more photos of it than any other. There was just something about it that compelled guests to get their cameras out and start shooting.
This lovely view shows a subtle transition from Fantasyland and the hub to the gateway into Frontierland. When I think of the old west I often think of endless grassy plains, or even deserts, but Disneyland's frontier is generally a more verdant landscape, perhaps more like what you might have found around the Mississippi 150 years ago. Favorite detail: the two gals with their cowboy hats, probably posing for an unseen photographer.
I can't have too many pictures of the Gonzalez Trio, though I wish this one wasn't so dark (I'll pretend it is from the Silhouette Shop on Main Street). I've seen this little bandstand in a number of photos, but this is the first (I think) in which I've seen it being used. Not a lot of room to move around, but at least it provided some shade!
