Some Views of Cascade Peak

A ride that has many fans is the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland. One of the main scenic elements was Cascade Peak sitting on the banks of the Rivers of America. These two slides are from 1960, the opening year of Nature's Wonderland and show close up images of Cascade Peak,.

Also from 1960 is this view of the tunnel prior to the Cascade Peak part of the ride.

Finally a view of Cascade Peak from the Mark Twain.

Hi. I don't know if you know my Paul Frees book which came out 5 years ago, but I'm now working on a 2nd edition, since I have a lot more information on 2 of his missing wives (including some wonderful letters he and his first wife wrote to each other during WWII!), and I'd love it if you could post on your blog that I'm seeking people (Disney or not) who worked with/knew him to interview for the book. I'm sure I missed some people the first time around. Thanks much!
