Dowdy Ranch Henry W. Coe State Park

As a State Park Volunteer I have to say it is a challenging time. We must constantly, it seems, be launching into high gear to advocate in favor of our California State Parks which seem to be a favorite political football of the Governor.

Meanwhile in the parks, life goes on. I did a weekend of Visitor Center Duty at the Day Use Area of Henry W. Coe State Park at the Dowdy Ranch. Worth fighting to keep this park open? You bet. Henry W. Coe State Park's 89,000 acres offers a chance to explore for an hour, a day, a week or several weeks in a wilderness setting.

Here's the beautiful evening and morning.
