#125 for Yosemite
October 01, 2015 08:33AM
Lest we forget, Yosemite became a national park on October 1, 1890. Happy 125 -- and many more!

I was there for the 100th and had hope to go today but it didn't work out. Happy Birthday Yosemite! Birthday Cake

We were there for the 100th, too, and this celebration was a lot larger than then. Five cakes, too...I think there was one in 1990.

Unfortunately, now 25 years later, I can't remember much about what was done. I think there was cake. I have a really nice tall wood peppercorn grinder with the 100th anniversary logo on it that I still use.

On behalf of Hutchings and Lamon: bah humbug! Return our 160 acres! Cry baby

All kidding aside, a day of celebration indeed. Cake and Candle

For those that live in the SF Bay Area: watch ch. 5 KPIX tonight @10:30P, for a special program on Yosemite.

I was there for the 125th celebration also. I enjoyed the festivities and speakers, and Tom Bopp was in prime form. Nice that the rain held during the entire thing. The cake was tasty as well. smiling smiley
