Great photos. I haven't been there in years, yet only live a few hours away. Hhhmmmm, I may have to go up there in a couple of weeks to get away from the heat.

My parents rode on this once about 20 years ago and really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting, it's nice to see some of what they experienced.

Very Nice Jamie. I like the mood that your rework gives and the sense of going back in time.

Thanks glad you like it. It looks a little better in CS3 than is does after the upload. Sorry about that.
