Disneyland 1962, Pt. 5



Sure is taking a long time to get around Tom Sawyer’s Island, isn’t it? Today's post starts out in a blaze of glory, as we view the Burning Cabin. The sicko inside of me has to zoom in for a glory closeup of the settler with an arrow through his chest. Somebody needs to prune back the shrubs—I can’t see all the blood & gore!



The not-so-real Indian Settlement:



And if you peer through all the brush and branches, you can see guests enjoying a leisurely ride on the Pack Mule attraction:



By stitching together 2 shots, I was able to create this panoramic shot of Rainbow Ridge:



To finish up this series, I leave you with two dock shots from The Jungle Cruise:

Always loved the burning cabin, and that's a mighty fine close-up on the pierced settler.

I too, always loved the burning cabin. It was exciting and it never made me think badly of Indians. These were great to see!

A fine view there of "Uncle Ed, in his Arrow shirt, welcoming folks to his house warming party."

Yes, I miss the Keelboats and jokes like that...
