Fellow Volunteers at City of Rocks

I am privileged to have experienced and kind volunteers to learn from and to  enjoy their company. 

Don(he wouldn't allow pictures!) is a jack of all trades.  He sometimes mans the visitor center, and sometimes works as a host in the csampground picking up trash bags and fees from the self-pay stations.  After picking up the fees, then he assists in accounting for the fees and the registrations.

Lois is a very able lady.

Lois mans the visitor center on my days off, and also does park maintenance by painting the building trim, signs, etc.  She is living with her sister, Bobbie,

who is the third volunteer.  She has been on site since Nov 2012 and has painted (with her sister Lois) all the signs, building trims, etc.  She is a hard worker and very good at everything she does.  Bobbie and Lois are living in Bobbie's Motorhome, which is a Siena brand RV.  I didn't know about the Siena, but looked it up on the internet.  The RV's are all manufactured exactly the same, and have regular household appliances throughout. 


  1. It is good to have great volunteers to help, I remember. Last year we would have been lost without the help of all the wonderful people we met. Painting those signs looks very tedious. Steady hand for sure.

  2. Sounds like a lot of people help to keep the park running! :)

  3. How nice that you talk about all the great people you work with and give them a bit of the spotlight.

  4. Your posts have made me wonder how much of the work done at our local state and national parks is done by a volunteer workforce. I always thought the staff members were employees but maybe they're volunteers, too. I'll have to inquire next time. They all do such a great job that I should make a special point of telling them so. :)


Due to strange comments from anonymous persons, I will be moderating comments for now.
