This picture of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was taken on our most recent trip in July of this year. It was taken from a favorite spot for my son and I, Fort Langhorn on Tom Sawyer Island. This place has become a tradition for Chris and I to go for a little "man time" while mom does some shopping around the Magic Kingdom. What you can't see in this picture is that directly to my left is our five year old looking down the barrel of a rifle pointed right at the train. A little mild violence......Disney style! Incidentally, the original Big Thunder Mountain Railroad opened in Disneyland exactly 32 years ago today, on September 2nd, 1979.
