July Winner

July 2019 POTM

Congratulations Tom Fletcher, Lightseeker Photography
"Calaveras Big Trees State Park is one of our favorite parks. We have been going there for over 30 years and enjoy it all four seasons, camping in the summer, cross country skiing in the winter and hiking year round. This summer we were hiking trails in the south Grove and took a wrong turn making for a long day. However we were rewarded with seeing this Silvery Blue butterfly as well as abundant wild flowers. We are long time supporters of the State Parks as we feel that everyone benefits from experiencing nature first hand!"
