The Indian War Canoes (now Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes) are jam-packed in this 1959 photo, presumably taken from the Mark Twain. I doubt that there were too many other canoes in the world that could hold 21 passengers! Notice the "Indians" piloting and steering the canoe.
Over in the Painted Desert of "Nature's Wonderland", we can see a Stagecoach vanishing beneath the distant stone arch - this would be their last year of operation. Years of wind-borne sand and seasonal flash floods have shaped the desert's rocks into the strange shapes seen here; and we get the added bonus of a cactus "forest".
