My dad lost his temper and one of the park rangers told us that we had to leave the property immediately
The San Joaquin Valley is a beautiful stretch of land. It is an extremely fertile place where agriculture and farming thrive. Visalia is located in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley in central California. My family and I moved to Visalia when I was 10 years old. My dad started working at the medical center. My mom took my sister and I to Sequoia National Park almost every weekend. We got to spend a lot of time outdoors. We took our bikes and sometimes we went hiking. We had picnics in the giant forest. We spent a lot of time with our mom and I felt like we were always outside. When my mom and dad separated, my sister and I had to live with my dad and we missed seeing my mom a lot. After my parents had some time to work on things, they were a lot nicer to each other. I remember a time when my mom and my dad took us to Sequoia National Park. Things were going really great until we were set up for a picnic and someone across the parking lot was smoking marijuana. My dad had a huge fit and he started yelling and screaming at the young guy who could not have been more than 25. Marijuana is legal in California and the guy wasn’t really doing anything wrong. My dad lost his temper and one of the park rangers told us that we had to leave the property immediately. The ranger didn’t even address the marijuana smokers. After that, my parents didn’t spend any more time together.
