Kim Duclo is a park ranger — a job so connected to his identity most people know him simply as “Ranger Kim.” He gives tours and talks and knows something about just about every corner of Balboa Park.
When I asked him about his favorite place in the park a couple of months ago, he paused. He seemed overwhelmed at the thought of picking one. But when I narrowed the question to a place and a time, he piped up.
“The park at first light in the morning or late at night,” he said.
