Have a swell chuckle 1940s-style at Jolly Lindgren's "hysterical" tourist maps of the Grand Canyon
, Grand Coulee Dam
, Lake Tahoe
, Yellowstone Park
, Palm Springs
, and Death Valley
. And it's lookin' mighty low..
Professional sport climber Joe Kinder recently admitted to cutting down two Juniper trees
at the base of a climbing cliff in the Tahoe, California region in order to make a climb safer. Kinder at first did not admit to the action, which may be illegal (with fines up to $500 and up to six months in jail if the tree was in the Tahoe National Forest)
but has since posted an apology (My Actions, My Responsibility, And My Mistake
) to his blog.
It's Hard Out Here for a (Ta)Hoe:
The smartypants over at GM are running a contest to "make your own" commercial for the gas-guzzling Tahoe SUV. People are giving them just what they deserve
These are likely to be yanked sooooooon, so get 'em while they're hot!
