Views From the Rivers of America- September 1963

The Rivers of America is the big draw in Frontierland and also home to many attractions. In addition to the Mark Twain, Columbia, Tom Sawyer's Island and the now gone Keel Boats, the river also served as a scenic part on the attractions in Fontierland. First up are two shots of the Indian Village that is just around the bend. First up a view with the mast and figurehead of the Columbia.

An unobstructed view of the Village, most likely the photographer was standing on the Mark Twain deck for this shot.

Speaking of the Mark Twain, here is a neat image of the ship pulling into dock while being serenaded by the Disneyland band.

The last picture for today shows the Mine Train and the Burro ride as seen from the Rivers of America.

That last shot is fantastic! Thanks.

I agree with Pegleg Pete! I've never seen quite that angle before, it's a beauty.

Oh my, that last shot in incredible.

I think that last shot was taken from the last car of the mine train as it crossed the trestle, not from the Mark Twain.

This area still exists right off of the Big Thunder trail. The last part of the trestle collapsed a few years back, but at least the fish still jump there once in awhile.
