Another week, another beautiful day at Disneyland USA, as we celebrated the start of summer vacation with friends.
The red, white and blue bunting is all along Main Street:
And what a gorgeous blue sky!
There are always beautiful flowers to enjoy, whether it's at the Hub...
...or close to the Matterhorn:
It was a real treat to finally meet longtime commenter Irene at the Golden Horseshoe! She was every bit as nice and friendly as I expected from her notes, and we certainly do have a lot in common. We even figured out a while back that we have mutual friends. Hopefully we'll have the opportunity in the future to enjoy Billy Hill and the Hillbillies together!
Then it was on to Big Thunder Mountain! Here's a view of one train taken as we rode the other:
A favorite view of Big Thunder:
It was a warm day, but there were plenty of cool spots and views, as the next two photos show:

And the Teacups had a nice mix of sun and shade. Here's a view looking towards Storybook Land Canal:
The elephants on the Jungle Cruise know how to stay cool too!
The train happened to pass behind Small World just as I was photographing the parade of dolls:
And here's a closeup of the parade:
We hope to return soon to see the new -- or newly refurbished -- Nightastic! entertainment, including the Electrical Parade, the Magical fireworks, the Pixie Hollow lights, and Fantasmic!
