We got several inches of snow yesterday and I had off work today so I figured it would be a good day to head to Knoebels and get some winter pictures. I drove down the old enterance way(where the big Knoebels sign is) and parked in a small parking lot next to the creek. The first few pictures I took were of the Phoenix. It still had snow on the structure and track. A few maintainance people were working on some of the bunny hops under the lift hill. The Phoenix looks great covered in snow. I guess its because of the gark greenish cover of the wood that makes the snow stand out. I saw the red train was in the transfer area and two cars of the yellow train were sitting in the consession area next to the Phoenix with the wheel assemblies taken off.
Next I made my way back toward the Haunted Mansion. All the cars were in storage and most of the signs were either covered or taken down for the winter months. All of the main paths have been plowed so it was easy to get around the park. Every now and then I would see a maintainance truck so I'd step out of the way and wave as they'd pass. All the trees in the park still had snow on them so it just made the scenery more beautiful. I then walked toward the covered bridge and got a few more pictures. I was actually surprised to see the carousel horses still in place although they had chainlink fence around the entire building. Lots of benches were also piled up under the as well.
As I walked toward the bumper cars I noticed some construction on the ice cream stand outside of Playland. The bumper cars were all gone from the building but noticed the cars from the Satelite taking up residence in their place. The Funnel Cake stand was gonen too but I saw some floor joists in that same area so I guess it's being replaced. The Galleon had a big canvas blanket covering the entire ship. The Whip looked like it hadn't been touched just snow on the roof. All the cars were still on the Giant Wheel and as the w渀搀 戀氀攀眀 礀漀甀 挀漀甀氀搀 猀攀攀 椀琀 猀氀漀眀氀礀 爀漀琀愀琀攀⸀ 倀漀眀攀爀 匀甀爀最攀 愀氀猀漀 栀愀搀 愀 最椀愀渀琀 戀氀愀渀欀攀琀 挀漀瘀攀爀椀渀最 琀栀攀 愀爀洀 戀甀琀 琀栀攀 挀愀爀猀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀 猀琀愀爀 琀栀攀 挀愀爀猀 愀爀攀 栀漀漀欀攀搀 琀漀 眀攀爀攀 搀椀猀愀猀猀攀洀戀氀攀搀⸀ 吀栀攀 䴀攀爀爀礀 䴀椀砀攀爀 眀愀猀 愀氀洀漀猀琀 渀漀渀 攀砀椀猀琀愀渀琀 樀甀猀琀 琀栀攀 挀攀渀琀爀愀氀 栀甀戀 眀愀猀 爀攀洀愀椀渀椀渀最⸀ 䤀 琀栀攀渀 洀愀搀攀 洀礀 眀愀礀 琀漀 琀栀攀 䘀氀礀攀爀猀 琀栀攀礀 眀攀爀攀 椀渀 琀栀攀 猀愀洀攀 猀栀愀瀀攀 愀猀 琀栀攀 䴀攀爀爀礀 䴀椀砀攀爀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 䈀礀 琀栀椀猀 琀椀洀攀 䤀 眀愀猀 爀甀渀渀椀渀最 氀漀眀 漀渀 昀椀氀洀 愀渀搀 猀琀椀氀氀 搀椀搀渀✀琀 最攀琀 愀渀礀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀猀 漀昀 吀眀椀猀琀攀爀⸀ 䤀 搀椀搀渀✀琀 猀攀攀 愀渀礀 漀昀 琀栀攀 琀爀愀椀渀猀 戀甀琀 搀椀搀 最攀琀 愀 昀攀眀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀猀⸀ 匀渀漀眀 猀琀椀氀氀 挀漀瘀攀爀攀搀 琀栀攀 攀渀琀椀爀攀 琀爀愀挀欀 戀甀琀 椀琀 搀漀攀猀渀✀琀 猀栀漀眀 甀瀀 愀猀 眀攀氀氀 愀猀 漀渀 琀栀攀 倀栀漀攀渀椀砀⸀ 䤀 猀琀椀氀氀 栀愀搀 愀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀 漀爀 琀眀漀 琀漀 琀愀欀攀 猀漀 䤀 眀攀渀琀 戀愀挀欀 琀漀 琀栀攀 倀栀漀攀渀椀砀 愀渀搀 最漀琀 愀 昀攀眀 洀漀爀攀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀猀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 䤀琀✀猀 愀洀愀稀椀渀最 琀漀 猀攀攀 栀漀眀 攀瘀攀爀礀琀栀椀渀最 椀猀 琀愀欀攀渀 搀漀眀渀 愀渀搀 猀琀漀爀攀搀 椀渀 搀椀昀昀攀爀攀渀琀 愀爀攀愀猀 漀昀 琀栀攀 瀀愀爀欀 攀猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀氀礀 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀 瀀愀爀琀猀⸀ 䤀 樀甀猀琀 琀栀椀渀欀 椀琀✀猀 愀 瘀攀爀礀 甀渀椀焀甀攀 攀砀瀀攀爀椀愀渀挀攀 琀漀 眀愀氀欀 琀栀爀甀 愀 猀氀攀攀瀀椀渀最 愀洀甀猀攀洀攀渀琀 瀀愀爀欀 渀漀琀 栀攀愀爀椀渀最 琀栀攀 爀漀愀爀 漀昀 琀栀攀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀猀Ⰰ 琀栀攀 猀洀攀氀氀 漀昀 昀漀漀搀Ⰰ 猀漀甀渀搀 漀昀 琀栀攀 洀甀猀椀挀 漀爀 琀栀攀 瀀攀漀瀀氀攀⸀ 䤀 琀栀椀渀欀 攀瘀攀爀礀 瀀攀爀猀漀渀 猀栀漀甀氀搀 最攀琀 琀栀攀 挀栀愀渀挀攀 琀漀 眀愀氀欀 琀栀爀甀 愀 挀氀漀猀攀搀 瀀愀爀欀 椀渀 琀栀攀 眀椀渀琀攀爀 琀漀 猀攀攀 椀琀 昀椀爀猀琀 栀愀渀搀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ 㰀戀爀㸀㈀ 猀琀愀琀猀㨀 ㌀㔀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀猀 椀渀 ㈀㘀 瀀愀爀欀猀 㰀戀爀㸀一漀琀 吀漀漀 匀栀愀戀戀礀 䘀漀爀 䄀 匀甀洀洀攀爀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䄀伀䰀 ☀ 䴀匀一 䤀䴀 一愀洀攀㨀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀瀀甀渀欀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀ഀഀഀ ⨀⨀⨀ 吀栀椀猀 瀀漀猀琀 眀愀猀 攀搀椀琀攀搀 戀礀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀瀀甀渀欀 漀渀 ㈀⼀㈀ ⼀㈀ ⸀ ⨀⨀⨀
