Kennedy Meadows meeting in Sonora this week

Kennedy Meadows is inextricably part of my backstory too. The Professor, my friends, and I have spent many hours riding our horses through the beautiful place on our way to the Emigrant Wilderness. We’ve eaten at the restaurant, spent time in the bar, and my favorite – hung out after dark by the corrals just to watch the stock.

When the ground under the resort was to be donated by the utility company to a public or nonprofit entity, I felt that of all things I could do as a county supervisor, preserving the heritage of the resort and its beauty could be my greatest accomplishment. The competition was fierce, but I am proud that I positioned the County with the Stewardship Council to secure that hallowed place in perpetuity – not for the Forest Service or for a nonprofit that would restrict the use of the resort, but for the people of Tuolumne County. I plan visit next month on my rambles with Ruby.

The Stewardship Council has announced the first of a number of meetings in Sonora to discuss the Kennedy Meadows pilot process. I will definitely be there, although I can’t arrive until shortly after 10:30.

If you are concerned about how the decisions will be made about its future, you need to show up and speak up at the Opera Hall in Sonora at 10 am on Wednesday, December 6th.

I like going places: out West, west of the West, and all the way around the back of the globe to the East. I like to go by train, plane, automobile, horseback. Whatever. And I like writing about what I see, feel, hear, smell, and touch all along the way and once I get there.
