Happy Birthday Great Pink One!
April 03, 2017 07:42PM
Please join JKW and me in wishing the Great Pink One a very happy birthday! This forum would not be what it is without his wealth of knowledge about all things Yosemite... and SEKI!


So many boundary markers, so little time...


Double Boop!


Found it!


Yes, it's TrailQuest!


Hey everyone, there are bighorn sheep near here!


Boatable!

And finally...


The One Between 49 and 51

Here's looking forward to many more wonderful trips!

Where to start??

Soooo very many wonderful trips over the past few years! So much fun. So much laughter and joy on the trail!

You have become a dear friend and I value the time you spend with Basilbop and me out there in the mountains we all love!

Thank you so much for all the encouragement, tips, tricks, jokes, pranks, TV Time, games, food, you-name-it!

It's been a blast and I look forward to many more years of exploring with you.

I hope you have a fabulous birthday trip (am very sorry I'll be missing it this year) but am looking forward to the birthday-observed trip as well as all future trips!

Have a Great One. Is that a picture of Black Rock Pass? Another place I need to get to.

Like the picture of marmot proofing the car on this link:
https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/78578/

Have you tried something like that with the Mineral King Marmots?

yj, uh... uh... I've been over Black Rock Pass (yes, that's the west side of the pass in the picture... )
but... uh.. uh... I have never been to Mineral King!

Will definitely remedy that this year!

Haven't dealt with Marmuts like that... I only saw that sorta thang at Isberg TH..
... been there a few times.. and never did any pro for them... never had any issues.
Not sure how much of a problem they really are there...
SEKI has a whole thang-a-dang on Mineral King Marmuts tho...

Anywho... yeah, it's gorgeous in that area!

Am really looking forward to hitting all the trails in and around Mineral King !

Happy Birthday to a great friend and saver-of-my-butt (on more than one occasion...). Wishing you endless expanses of granite slabs, boating unnamed lakes, and apparently "booping."

Why DID you cross the road?

A very happy birthday to you. Your pose in that first photo at the very top almost appears to be a statue of you.

Those are incredibly kind words. Really appreciate.

Mike is literally honestly without a doubt one of the nicest personages you could ever meet.

Goatie!!!

Olde Dude is passing around a rumor that you have become an Olde Goat!! I had to explain to him that Goaties age differently than humans: they stay forever young and vital!. That silly Olde Dude.

Happy B-day, Goatie!
