Check out this beautiful, crisp, clear photo of the Bertha Mae! It looks so great, as does Frontierland, still in relatively rough state. Fowler's Harbor looks like it has been there for 100 years. Guests on Tom Sawyer Island are exploring the mysteries of this fairly new Disneyland attraction, and I am jealous of each and every one of them.
Here's another photo from the same lot, taken later in the day. The Keelboat passes the dock, which is strewn with cargo waiting for a passing steamboat. In the distance you can just see the old water tower that fed the steam locomotives. Which suddenly makes me wonder... where does the Mark Twain refill when its boilers run low? I can't believe I never thought of that before. Do they just hook up a hose when the boat is at the loading dock?
