Fun read... more please! I remember doing Ruper in 1967.


Jim, not sure if you sniffed out my breadcrumbs following your request from this snappy retread thread …

Sorry, Laura, once a man of action, and now being fairly beached, my strong suit is master of the perfect picnic with Lisa.

So if your taste runs toward TRs of picnics in beautiful places, it may be that I will oblige!

One of our latest tricks, is to share those picnics with our blowup doll, Molly. It's quite a threesome!
Lisa does the paddling, I organize the hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and the unsinkable Molly Brown provides untold hours of bouncy pleasure!











Last three photos by Rachel Ames.
She's got quite an eye, and sports a stunning collection of local Colorado images:

Tarbuster! Nice to see you out & about in any way. Take those photos, pound the keyboard, & share the results with us. It's always entertaining.

Hey Pagan Monkey!
Remember tooling around Indian Creek in your new rig with Nature, searching the airstrip, sneaking sips of whiskey and stretching out in the bright sunshine?

That was a good day.

Here's the thread, I also added it to the OP:

Walter, here is your taste of the pictures of Messick!
Mount Amelia Ehrhardt to McClure, to Lyell, 20 hour day, from the Meadows:


Approaching Amelia Ehrhardt:




Pristine rubble on McClure:




We were already pretty shagged when I snapped this gem:





And Messick on the approach to Matterhorn Peak:






Matterhorn's oh so glorious crux:



(... or maybe that's the endurance corner on Astro Man, with a bad case of photo tilt-itis?)

This is now the official, sloppy drunk … ‘mkay, slightly buzzed, TBuster Rocky Mountain Picnic Thread.

So, our comic book heroine, The Bunny, and her trusty-busted sidekick, Tarbousier, made away with the second picnic of the year today.

(first picnic staged at a nice sandstone bench placed at the short loop of the Blue Dot Trail adjacent to Magnolia East, was a dry run, yo)

..........................................................

Golden Gate Canyon State Park, just south of an hour ago:

First things first, a quick introduction to the person that makes it all happen …
'Cuz you gotta figure I ain't got much to do with it:

A crag that we saw while hiking along, called Ralston Roost:

Tim Stich and I tagged that mofo some years ago:

Primary goal of picnicking ... sheltering from the wind on the lee side, catching a good dose of red wine & sunshine before a veil of clouds closes back in:

We interrupt this broadcast for the wine tasting notes:
………………………………………………………

Quadrant Wines, Quadrant BDX, Paso Robles
Merlot 34%, Cabernet Sauvignon 26%, Petite Sirah 25%, Petit Verdot 15%
Alcohol 12.8% by volume

On the nose: boysenberry, flint, noticeable acidity...guessed syrah and zinandel as the informing grapes.
Color in the glass: ruby and purple at edge.

In mouth: full bodied, Merlot comes thru with roundness and bell pepper.
Good backbone to the blend delivered by the Cabernet. Wish I had bought more! Paid about seven or eight dollars a bottle.


Impressions, which Lisa dictated into her phone for me after we sought shelter in the car:

This is how I want my life to be: toasted 57-year-old body, 12 & half-year-old consciousness, hiding from the cold on a beautiful spring day in a secluded CO state park, recalling the tasting notes for the terrific red wine Lisa and I just shared on our picnic. (Essentially a Paso Robles version of a right bank Bordeaux). All the while sheltering from the 40° weather under the sanctuary of the car heater, and listening to the soothing refuge of jazz by Wessel Anderson.

………………………………………………………

Back into the Bimmer for a quick tour of Panorama Point:

And this one, with Tim Stich, in 2010, via the slender buttress on the left side:

And a future target, visible from the Panorama Point porch, some
prime local Colorado choss, probably gonna wander up that shite with partners Stich, Nature, Nick Danger, or some combination ... or all three simultaneously!
