Daily Photo Tour - To the Frontiers of America

I love rounding the corner from Adventureland into Frontierland. When I was a little boy, I had a small log cabin that looked a lot like the siding of the Pioneer Mercantile. Along with that, my grandparents bought me a custom sign that read, "Fort Matthew". That sign was lost somewhere along the way of growing up and I miss it, but this sign that marks the entrance to the frontiers of America reminds me of it and all the time I spent imagining I was like Davy Crockett, king of my wild frontier... or the backyard anyway.

2 Thumbs up on this one! I have always liked this little crossover section between Adventureland and Frontierland.

Elaine - Thank you so much! That's what I was trying for. So glad you like it!

Dave - Thank you! I thought you might like this, if for no other reason than your affinity to elk antlers. ;)
