Two Attractions at Nature's Wonderland

One of the unique aspects for Nature's Wonderland was the way two different rides intertwined throughout the same attraction footprint. The most popular and easiest ride was to jump aboard a lovely yellow train to take a leisurely trip through desert, forest and lovely caverns.

The second ride through Nature's Wonderland was on the back of pack mules. Not as popular and slower the mules transported guests on trails through desert and forest. The pack mules were removed from the park in 1971.

I always wanted to ride the mules. By the time I worked up the courage to be close to one, they were gone.

More great images of the Nature's Wonderland/Rainbow Ridge area. I love it! BTW, Pack Mules closed in late 1973, not 1971.
