I almost always have a special love for photos that give just a little taste of what it was like to be on a ride - particularly when it is a ride that is long-gone. Like this first image, taken while the photographer was sitting on the old Rainbow Caverns Mine Train. Notice that the train cars are dark green rather than the bright yellow they would be painted in 1960. The guy in front of us is soaking in some of the many details on the old-timey buildings.
Here's a nice view of Rainbow Ridge as seen from the Mark Twain. The Pack Mules can be seen, and the load area for the Conestoga Wagons and the Stage Coach is to our left.
