Sad story and true. And people complain if you impose some small park fee to raise money to help pay for rangers etc.

And California only has a $9 billion surplus this year. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I worry about the resources being abused and trashed. Even with the full ranger staff there was too much abuse of the area.

Wow. This is shocking. I'd rather have a full staff at all the parks than a half built high speed rail system, but that's just me.

There was a disturbing amount of litter, graffiti, vandalism, and campfire damage in a couple places recently.

I don’t know if it is due to less Rangers or more idiots or a combo of both.

Culp Valley, Old Culp Valley rd, The Slab, Dos Cabezas, Mortero Palms, Plum Canyon. This was all in mid July to early August.

I revisited Plum Canyon a couple weeks later and found someone had mostly cleaned up the graffiti and filled in the illegal fire ring.

I picked up some trash. Didn’t have room for it all.

Thanks, I’ll try to see who has adopted those areas for Adopt a Wash/Trail.

One terrible example. This graffiti was scrubbed mostly clean a couple weeks later and the fire ring filled in. Lots of stuff like this in various areas.

Thanks for helping keep it clean.

This is probably not just due to local idiots. A friend has contacts with the Border Patrol and they say there is an large uptick in illegal immigrant activity (apparently they think the Wall will be built and are getting in while they can)
Note- The BP also says they are finding more illegals armed with AK's and AR's...so be aware out there.
