Blurred Gems, Pre-1965: Rivers of America

Board the Mark Twain for a tour of the Rivers of America. So much to see and do here, yet also a wonderful place to sit back and relax while this beautiful riverboat takes around Tom Sawyer Island. Speaking of TSI, here’s a closeup of the Old Mill. Sorry signage geeks, the shot is too blurry to zoom in for detail. So for now, just pretend this slide is a Monet, stand back, and squint. You might get better results.

Another one from TSI; not sure, but this could be the 3 Falls described in the original TSI brochure: “Legend tells us that many moons ago, lightning struck this tree and caused three waterfalls to spring from its roots…and The 3 Falls became the headwaters of the Rivers of America.”

Another mode of transportation for the Rivers of America is this long-gone Keelboat:

And if you still need more variety, how about a canoe, or the Columbia?

Last one from this series shows the Nature’s Wonderland Mine Train passing the falls of Cascade Peak.
