Back to the real world

Every once in a while I have to go down to Disneyland and pretend that this is what life is all about. Oh, well, for a couple of days this IS what life is all about! These are some Disneyland attractions from the opening day of July 17th 1955 that are still around:

    • I was riding around the outside of Disneyland on the railroad that goes around the park, and when we got to Frontierland, they have a variety of different trees. My daughter asked if they’re real, there are so many of them! I said they are, but I’m not sure what type they all are. You would know, Tony.

      • I might be able to identify them if I could see them. Disneyland happens to be outfitted with some rather uncommon trees; and some of the common trees are pruned in such a manner that they are not easy to recognize.
