The Roller Coaster at Crapo Park, Burlington, Iowa

Partial entry from Wikipedia (10/2010): "Crapo Park (85 acres, 34 hectares) is a city park with arboretum and botanical garden, located alongside the Mississippi River at Parkway Drive, Burlington, Iowa. Those who are not familiar with the park often mispronounce it as "Crap-O" Park while the correct pronunciation is Cray-po Park. It is reputed to be the site where the American flag was first raised on Iowa's soil, by Zebulon Pike in 1805."

This roller coaster photograph, taken in about 1985 as the small amusement park within Crapo decayed (since removed), was a very scary ride when I was a little kid. It was always a joy to go to the amusement park the times I would be there. Often this was with relatives, but my grade school would have yearly "end-of-term" picnics there each spring, a day off school, when we would also get to enjoy the rides.
