King’s Canyon and Sequoia National Park

King’s Canyon and Sequoia National Park

After dipping our toes in the big blue ocean, we were off to King’s Canyon National Park.

We met up with Patrick Rizzo, a wholehearted nature lover who is currently working for the National Parks Service. He lives in King’s Canyon in a little cabin during his on-season in the summer and roams around adventuring in a blue VW van the rest of the year. Patrick loves the natural world down to his bones and he never stops expressing his reverence of trees, clouds, mountains and wild creatures. We hiked, swam, looked, listened, felt sad, felt glad, felt sleepy and hung out in big trees all over the Park.

Hanging out in the forest


In addition to being a naturalist,  Patrick is a pretty awesome downhill skateboarder. He picked it up as a kid growing up in Berkeley, and was just involved in the Sector 9 presented film “Second Nature,” a must-see for anyone who digs skateboarding, romping around in the outdoors or blue suits.

Next up – Yosemite.

  7. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
