We all know that crazy mountain as "The Matterhorn" - - that's what the Germans call it. But did you know that Italians call it "Mt. Cervino"? Now you do. It's an interesting factoid, but I'm going to keep calling it by its more familiar moniker.
Let's start with this unusual angle (taken near the Plaza Inn?) looking across the lawn and plantings toward the artery that leads into Tomorrowland, and the yellow and white tent (souvenirs) where the old House of the Future used to be.
Like many old Ektachrome slides, this one has an odd yellow-orange cast to it. See the bobsled? I wonder if the ride used to go faster when it was just single bobsleds instead of two hitched together.
Well, whaddaya know, it's Hans and Otto. They just love to climb! The top of Disneyland's Matterhorn is littered with empty oxygen bottles, as well as the frozen bodies of climbers who weren't so lucky.
