Celebration: 150 Years ago Abraham Lincoln Created the First California State Park

On Sunday at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, hikers celebrated the 150-years anniversary of Abraham Lincoln designating Yosemite Valley as the first California state park.

In honor of the anniversary, KSBW Action8 News reported that Point Lobos arranged for guided hikes replete with telescopes set up along the way of Whaler’s Cover for hikers to check out the ocean life, which included sea otters and sunbathing sea lions.

The park, which is a refuge for the animals and the people prompted visitor Cindy Posey to observe, “I think nature brings us closer to whoever we see as our God or our creator, and what better place than to come right here and see that.”

Georgia Vaughn, who came to view the abundance of nature and watch the waves crashing against the shore and jetties, responded saying, “There are parts of me that stay asleep a bit until I come out here… It’s a place of peace.”
