SOS ... Save Our State Parks
As California continues to figure out how to overcome its $20 billion budget shortfall (although it seems to depend on the day exactly how much we are in debt), many rallies are being held at the Capitol protesting budget cuts. One of them was about closing 48 state parks for a total savings of yes, less than $13.5 million a year. Below are some pictures of the rally organized by "Save our State Parks." I thought this was one of the most creative rallies at the Capitol, most enjoy having lots of loud people yelling (in fact there was another rally the same day that had that), but this one marched from historic Sutter's Fort (a park on the closure list) to the Capitol with people riding in covered wagons and marching in period costumes to the West Steps of the Capitol. It was really something to see.
