It was a lot more landscaped before Stealth. Now, with Boomerang Bay, hopefully the trees they planted will look nice in the area once they are grown.

yeah, it's just field of tanbark, with waterslide, few random small trees and LARGE Stealth footers scattered about... but the trees have grown in very nicely around the entrance queue. I REALLY like the way they have the original logo on the logs (although some have lost their paint).

If you check out the rides section and look at the yankee clipper section, you can see some shots of loggers run old waterway.

Steven has a cool shot here when it is absent:

and you can see the difference between how it looked...

with Stealth completed:

I love the queue to Logger's Run in Santa Clara. It looks so awesome with the trees grown. It reminds me of a forest. I sish they would do something with the Stealth footers, even though it would be expensive.

Do you have an aerial view that shows loggers and stealth together for comparison?
