Here are two unrelated photos - unrelated other than the fact that they are both in the square "126" film format. Man, do I love this first picture (from June 1965)! It's SO nice with that orange Skyway bucket perfectly positioned. It looks like a publicity photo; the kind you might find in a souvenir guidebook. Those kids are soaking it all in; even the slightly out-of-focus background details below add to the depth and charm of the image.
From August 1964 comes this nice shot of Rainbow Ridge (taken from the back of a pack mule?). In fact it's practically the very end of civilization… once you passed these buildings you really entered Nature's Wonderland. Which I wish I could do!
