Sometimes I wish there was some kind of wonderland. Maybe a donut wonderland? No… that's not it. A twerking wonderland? Hmmm, that's not quite right either. A daytime TV wonderland? I've got it! "Nature's Wonderland"! Perfecto!
These are from a lot of slides that tended to veer toward the weirdly dark and moody. These aren't too bad though! I think 90 percent of Nature's Wonderland photos were taken in the Rainbow Desert area, and these are no different; In this first one, our vantage point seems kind of high up… we are at eye level with those tall saguaro cacti, and even as high as many of the stone formations. Could this have been taken from the Disneyland Railroad? It's kind of odd. Anyway, the detail I like in the line of pack mules in the distance, heading toward the Natural Arch to our left.
There are those crazy geysers. It was a pleasant thing to have cool water spray drift over you on a hot summer day. I wonder if they turned these off on a day in which the powerful Santa Ana winds kicked in? Guests could have been drenched.
