It's Father's Day! I miss my dad constantly, so if your father is still around, be sure to let him know how awesome you think he is.
These rock formations (found in Nature's Wonderland's "Living Desert") were probably state-of-the-art back in 1960 (the year before this photo was taken), but they look pretty funky by today's standards. Still, they got the job done, and with all of the plants and animals to see, guests might not have even noticed. Though I know that, as a kid, the "tumbling rocks" were a pretty creaky effect. Notice the Disneyland RR in the background.
This is a pretty terrible photo of the scratching, lazy bears. You can hardly see them! Maybe they had perfected some sort of stealth technology or cloaking devices. Even heat-seeking missiles couldn't find them. The only interesting detail is that it appears as though the pond (where you would see the fishing bears) is empty. I've never seen that before.
