The red-yellow certainly made a bright visual statement when it was new, but it didn't fit with Rivertown, and came before they started doing things like Mystic to properly fit their areas.
In those photos it looks like the track leading up into the brake run has a kind of "tree bark" color to it but I'm not seeing anything on the supports yet.
It would be nice if the area behind the former Crypt building had a bunch of trees replanted. Rumor from back when DB was being built is those were cleared in case they needed to use a tower crane installation to complete the back part of the ride, if the big Manitowoc crawler crane wouldn't work on the back road. True or not, it's been left an open grass lot ever since and re-foliating that area would made it look a lot nicer.
