A Park Blogger With Some Humor

National Park Ranger BloggerLast week I read an article from the Point Reyes National Seashore in California. It turns out that someone had planted nearly 2,500 marijuana plants hidden within the park. Once discovered, it took 12 park rangers, 2 helicopters, and sheriff's deputies all day to get rid of them. You can read the original article here. I didn't post the story on Park Remark because I didn't really have anything new to add. Yes, that was a lot of pot, but unfortunately, pot in the parks isn't anything new.

Well, there is a new park blogger out there that DID have something to say about it. Here are his thoughts:
Naturalists hiking through Point Reyes National Seashore may stumble upon a plant they won't find in their field guide, Cannabis sativa. Apparently, someone has planted thousands of marijuana plants in a secret garden in a remote area of the park. Inconsiderate park rangers have removed the plants and ruied an entrepreneurs plans to make tie-died hemp t-shirts.

That just cracks me up! I love that kind of humor. The blogger identifies himself only as "Ranger Gord". As I read some of his other funny observations, it seems probable that he is an active duty law enforcement ranger in the NPS somewhere.

I've added his website to my "links" section at the right.
