You’ve all heard of the backside of water, well, now you have the backside of the Mark Twain.
A few other things you can see from the Twain as you journey around the Rivers of America include The Old Mill & The Columbia docked at Fowler’s Harbor:

And last but not least, 2 of the Nature’s Wonderland Mine Train chugging by the wilderness and Cascade Peak:
