Go Climb a Rock

Go Climb a Rock is an expertly curated parade of vintage photographs of granola-eaters hiking around in the woods. Or it usually is. This week, they published this shot of a couple of very modern-looking girls hanging out atop Corona Heights Park.

At first I was like, “What is this thoroughly modern tableau doing cluttering up an otherwise–” And then I realized: no Transamerica Pyramid. They’re a couple of hippies, way back in the stone age, climbing a rock. But they look just like us!

The more things change, the more they stay exactly the same, right? I saw both those pairs of sunglasses at Buffalo Exchange the other day, I swear.

    The giveaway for me was the over-sized yellow yarn hair bow. My mom totally sported that look back in the day.

    Actually, the REAL giveaway is the Bank of America building (the black skyscraper), which was built AFTER the TransAmerica– the girl is just blocking it where she’s standing.
    This pic is definitely not that old.

    PS- My mom was the author of the ‘Go Climb A Rock’ tee shirt phrase– that’s what led me to your site– just thought I’d salute you and compliment your taste in titles- cheers!:D
