Big Thunder Falls/Cascade Peak, November 1960

The other day, I showed a pic of Big Thunder Falls, which lost its Thunder in 1998 at the hands of a bulldozer. My second shot for today (gotta' keep the Major out of trouble at all costs) shows the Seawolf Submarine, which hopefully is one of the subs being “recycled” for the upcoming Nemo ride. I full support sustainability! This one is also from November, 1960.

See more vintage Disneyland photos at my website.

Cascade Peak...who knew it would ever go away (and that I'd miss it so much)?? I know that it was supposedly in terrible condition, but I hate the fact that they chose the cheap way out rather than restoring it.

Thanks for the pics!

Is that just my imagination or does the shot of Cascade Peak have one of the elusive and short-lived "mountain goats"?

I like that you show both sides of the park! Great views. I hear the subs are going to be the same, but they will be painted the bright yellow as they were when the ride closed.
