I can't remember where this came from, but I'm sure of one thing...I didn't steal it from the attraction itself. First of all, when the ride closed, I was too young and naive to even consider vandalizing my favorite attraction.
However, as I became older, stealing Matterhorn stickers from the front of the ride vehicles was a part-time hobby in which I was mentored by a Disneyland-collecting pioneer (you know who you are...if you actually read this thing). It was tough to get them off complete, but as long as you started picking at the sticker from the top right corner and peeled slowly downward, you were in like Flynn. Back in those days, there were no cameras on the lift-hill, so you had to peel it, fold it in half and stuff it down your shirt before emerging into the sunlight. These days, I wouldn't try it. Damn you, infra-red!
