California State Park officials last week said the list of parks to close could be announced sometime this week. "Possibly by the end of the week, but nothing is for sure," said Sheryl Watson, a state parks spokesperson, over the phone today. Word on the street among parks activists concur, but some speculate next week will hold D-Day. And with state offices furloughed this Friday, it's anybody's guess.

Just know that you still have some time to enjoy your favorite state park, which may or may not close. At the very least, we can all hope for at least one more weekend and this will be the last official one of summer.
