The featured ‘Story of the Week’ in this week’s Preservation Magazine is on the dire straits of California’s state parks. As the well-researched article points out (and with the opening verbal imagery provided by yours truly…), the funding cuts are harming every aspect of the system. The only silver lining is the strong interest from the public – and volunteers – in helping. But real support will only come when a measure like a vehicle-registration fee that is earmarked for parks is passed, something the CA Parks Foundation has been pushing. We’ll probably see next fall just whether the state’s voters will put their money where their mouths are, so to speak.

About this blog
A Buffalo , New York native, I spent half of my life hibernating indoors, but for the past five years I have basked in the thrilling opportunity to enjoy year round hiking on the many trails of beautiful Northern California. In this blog I will continue in the tradition of trailhead, to recap the hikes I have taken and share the insights of my fellow hikers. Along with day hikes, I am also interested in dog friendly trails, and backpacking trips as well. Please feel free to offer suggestions of where I should hike next, or share tales of where you have explored. . Guest blog entries are extremely welcome as are your photos from your own hikes.
