Photographer's Note

The lock on this state park gate might be in place permanently if we are not vigilant. California was very close to closing this state park and others like it a few months ago - part of the 'solution' to our deplorable budget shortfall.

I don't mean to sound gloomy, but the fiscal situation in this country, and in this state, is maddening. We pay more taxes now than ever in history, and Californians are among the highest taxed in the country. Yet we seem to run out of money faster every year, and every year the services we get for our money shrink.

I wonder where we will be in a year, 5 years, 20 years. I wonder what 'the people' will decide is worth paying for and not, because the current situation is unsustainable.

Given that reality, it seemed appropriate to capture this image on a dark, rainy day.
