Here we go

In my last post I said it was the end. Please understand that I meant it was the end of our story. There's really no more to tell on top of this amazing adventure. We did what we did and we made this blog for every Horizons fan on the face of the Earth.

Folks have sent emails concerned that this blog is's hard to explain. It's not about lack of content because we have plenty more for you.

There was really no climax for Chief and I, which if there was, would make an excellent story. The attraction closed and we stood empty. For years. After the fact we collected tons of material and it doesn't really fit into our adventure story but it's all part of the history of Horizons.

We loved the attraction. Risked our lives. Took pics and video to preserve it and 12 years later blogged about it.

YOU will never stand empty. This blog will live for years to come and we'll continue to post our pics and later findings.

It ain't over 'til it's over.

Back to Nova Cite. Right behind us is the Mesa Verde Scent cannon. In front is Mom's apartment garden. We'd sneak around (on hands and knees) 'til we reached a door which lead to a huge room behind the backdrop. There, was stored huge glass panels for the Peppers Ghost effect. Endless coolness.

See those boxes full of "things"? We picked through them and found artifacts some of which followed us home. The boxes lay dank and dirty long forgotten by the people who were supposed to use their contents to keep scenes nice and neat.

Horizons was on it's death bed. No longer cared for. The family that had created her was gone.

Chief and I knew that this was the end but we kept at it. To care for Horizons at least in memories. We started to go mad with collecting everything we could.......


  1. Even though there my not be much of a story left, I'm glad there will be more pictures for some time. Very glad.

  2. "Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!"

    Love you guys.
