Rivers of America, January 1996

The remaining portion of my collection that has yet to be scanned grows ever-smaller, and that includes these 35mm negatives from the mid-1990s. So I'm down to "whatever is left"! Anyway, today we will stay near the life's blood of Frontierland - the murky green waters of the Rivers of America. I feel right at home since my Vulcan blood is also green. 

This is a terrific picture of Cascade Peak, a beautiful feature seen near Rainbow Ridge (back when the Mine Train was still there). One of the canoes has narrowly avoided a dunking beneath the roaring waterfall, which I'll bet was lots of fun. Who would have imagine that Cascade Peak would be torn down just a couple of years later?

"Gullywhumper" is just a fun word to say. Go ahead, try it. The louder the better! The 'whumper is just about to pass one of Cascade Peak's little side waterfalls (did it have a name?). I sure regret never riding a keel boat at Disneyland.

Uh oh, it's those teenagers, racing their canoes again. No respect for other people! It's all fun and games until somebody gets wet.

Picture perfect (pun intended) shot of Cascade Peak. Could be a postcard shot.

Major - I can't open the large-size image files on today's post. Could this be a repeat of the same problem you were having the other day?

Alonzo, if only you knew how many photos of Cascade Peak were taken by my friend, in order to get the best shot! Dozens.

Chuck, thanks for letting me know. I can see now that I am going to have to do this for every blog post, but I wish I knew WHY this was happening. I'll fix it.

How much would it cost to replace Cascade Peak? It could be designed to let the canoes sail behind the waterfalls and maybe encounter a lurking Mike Fink or other river critters.
Thanks for these pictures Major(you can almost smell the water spray and the trees), and for the treasure trove you've shared for 7 years!

I like how these images are shot low and close to the water. The Gullywhumper photo is perfect.

Beautiful pics of the river attractions.

Great view of the "three-window" Gullywhumper too. From the viewpoint, it seems that some of these may have been shot from a canoe, hard to do when you are supposed to be paddling.

Lost images. Thanks Major.

On a hot day, the falls at Cascade Peak was definitely the place to stop on the canoes. -- Former Canoe CM

Looks like Ariel on the top deck of the Gullywhumper. No sign of Prince Eric though...

Raimundo, I'll bet that it was cost a lot more to build "Cascade Peak II" than one might think. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE it if they did it. But a new peak wouldn't draw in customers, meaning it wouldn't put money in the Disney company's bank account. And thanks for the nice comment!

K. Martinez, I think these might have been taken from Tom Sawyer Island, but I'm not sure. The Gullywhumper pic is a beauty!

JG, I wish I knew more about the exact history of the Keelboats… how many were there? When were they retired? Stuff like that.

Former Canoe CM, I believe you!

Tom, is that "Ariel" up on top, toward the stern?
