Strange and frightening sounds echo
Scattered along the Rivers of America are buoyant markers that inform you of your current location on the river. Sometimes straightforward, like Tree Snag Reef, my favorite notice, Howling Dog Bend, alludes to something else just around the last riverbend. As you come out of the wilderness, the lush greenery gives way to sparse and gangly gardens whose upkeep has been, shall we say, ghastly. These rows of unkempt shrubbery are best viewed from the decks of the Liberty Belle.
Between river warnings and rundown gardens it appears that the otherworldly reach of the grim, grinning ghosts has stretched out beyond its manor into the surrounding countryside of Liberty Square.
