Dogpatch, Arkansas (June 20, 2004)
|The road up to the top of the hill is slowly being eaten by vegetation. Several people still live up on the hill in some condo-type buildings, and back along the dirt roads, so the road isn't in danger of being overcome completely. Still it looks just a little spooky.|
|This is the entrance and gift shop. The tree at left has grown mighty large. I'm not sure if that tree was there in the 80's or not.|
|Daisy Mae under ivy.|
|The Funicular Tram and its various mechanisms. Note below the beheaded body of the goat statue that I believe used to occupy a place on the roof of the gift shop.|
|Compare with this picture.|
|"Formal landscaping is literally unknown to the citizens..."|
