Public access to public land
What a magnificent weekend. Get out there and enjoy it in real life. I went to the lower falls at Golden Ears today. They had all kinds of signs up saying the park was closed. How can you close a public park? The campgrounds were full fair enough but it is a public lake and there are lots of other places in the park people can visit. They even had signs up that said the gate was closed. No it's not. We're not stupid. You can't close the gate during the day. People have to be able to leave with their boats from a day of water skiing. The Gold Creek day area is nice this time of year but was indeed packed. There was lots of parking at the trail head to the water falls. Some of these mall cop wannabees need to get a grip on reality. It's a beautiful place and a public park.
