A family of birds have taken up residence in a cave that is part of “Hot Tuna” please tread lightly. The four chicks are well along the way towards fledgling. Let’s give them a chance…. Please don’t mess with them.
Hey Guy, What kind of bird are they? Seems really vulnerable! Considering the amount of people that go by there, it's only a matter of time before
some a-hole kills them. That's even low enough for a cat to get them.
I've been wondering about a couple of wino characters that frequented SP during the early sixties: One's name was Phil Mesch (sp?); I can't remember the other's. They were actually pretty good climbers on their favorite routes, and they always drank cheap Ripple wine and bragged about how much better their climbing got as an afternoon and their drunkeness progressed. Have there been any postings about them? They always added a lot of color and laughter to our "more serious" approach to climbing. VERY entertaining! Anyone have any pix of them?
I was just trying to remember those guys names, then with a little help from my friends Google and BooDawg - Phil Mesch (sp?) - yes! Larry was maybe the other guy. I think Phil is the one who tried to jump from one branch to another in one of those big oaks down where we used to park. Of course he missed and ended up in what I remember as nearly a full body cast - but he was back the next day on the Ripple! Sadly have no photos.
