Description: 1958 THE FACE OF AMERICA vintage magazine article "Reserved for Everybody"

~ California gutted her valleys for gold, fed her ancient trees into the mills, and stained her beaches with oil. She was a young state, and heedless -- and her people protested and began, a generation ago, to set aside some of the wild and wonderful scenery for Californians yet unborn. She passed strict laws, now California has 600,000 acres of state parks.

Point Lobos Reserve, a small jewel in this collection of natural treasures, is a 345-acre peninsula on Carmel Bay, south-west of Monterey. The Spaniards, who found it first, called it Point of the Sea Wolves after the sea lions that lived there. (To the Spanish, Pacific seals seemed more lupine than leonine.)

Here Californians and tourists may cast for bluefish, kelp bass, cabezone and ling cod. They may observe the cormorants and pelicans, or admire the twisted cypress trees and wild flowers in season. With these pleasures they mush be content. Visitors are warned: "No object, living or dead, may be disturbed, injured or removed!" Here, even in the outdoors, smoking is frequently forbidden.

Thus -- and none too soon -- has California insured that her eternal past will be available for her unpredictable future. - Photograph by Art Riley ~
