No one knows which state parks will close this week and that's a pretty scary reality if you're particularly fond of them. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's fat $39 million cut to parks earlier this summer meant that around 100 parks would close. Earlier this summer, state park officials said they needed time to tinker with the budget to see how many could be saved and how they could save even more by raising fees and partnering with local cities, nonprofits and businesses.

If you're looking for something to do today, a visit to a potentially soon-to-be-closed state park might fit the bill. Let's hope for the best. An announcement of park closures could come as early as tomorrow.
