I'm sure that the pioneers of olden days would be surprised that, in the future, children would want to ride mules for fun. Chances are good that many of these suburban kids had never seen a real mule before, much less had the opportunity to ride one. My family always opted for the Mine Train, but I sure wish that I had seen Nature's Wonderland from the gently swaying back of one of the patient, gentle animals.
Lifting kids all day will get you in awesome shape! Notice the little girl with the white cat's-eye shades… she loves her new pal, and he loves her.
I wish this one was a bit sharper, but that's what happens when you take pictures from a moving vehicle. Drunk. In this neat pre-Matterhorn image, our Skyway bucket is heading toward Fantasyland; the highest tower is perched atop Holiday Hill, which is criss-crossed with trails and landscaped with trees and shrubs (and weeds). It's hard to believe that the Matterhorn Bobsleds would open a mere seven months (roughly) after this photo was taken.
