Last month on the first day of summer our car broke down in the middle of the road at 6,000ft elevation on the road to the General Sherman tree and could not be moved, and this lovely ranger came out and directed traffic around us off and on for a solid five hours til the nearest tow truck could get to us. I don't remember her name, but she mentioned she drove a Subaru. Anyway, her help was much appreciated! I'd like to buy all the rangers that helped us that day a cup of coffee. Hands down the best place to be stranded for five hours.


Thank you, Shelton, for your warm personality and your fascinating stories about the Buffalo Soldiers and their significant work and presence in Yosemite. I walked with you a few years ago and still remember what a delightful experience that was.

C.O. & Fortress Staff

Hello: I want to thank the entire staff @ Castillo San Marcus for excellent customer service!!!! Two years ago, I spent two weeks in St. Augustine, FL. I was given a National Park pass, since I was a Veteran. This pass is good @ all Natl Parks, & will save you on entry fees. I visited the Fortress everyday, & photographed all of the Spanish bronze cannons. The Park staff, rangers, are very helpful & take extra care in the safety of all the visitors. I informed a volunteer, of a 24 lb bronze cannon on top deck, that was on shipboard.
