Grizzly Peak Airfield
After several months of refurbishment, the Grizzly Peak Airfield area finally opened in time for the 60th anniversary celebrations. This replacement for Condor Flats expands the rustic Grizzly Peak ambiance and brings new trees, new shade, and new color palettes to this aviation-themed land. The results have been great. I've always enjoyed the wilderness feel of Grizzly Peak, and overlaying that onto the former Condor Flats has made it a lot more photogenic! Here are a few photos taken during the 24-hr day to show off a bit of what's debuted.

|The sign into Grizzly Peak is subtle and understated.
