Dale Boehme, left, of Pleasanton, and his wife Barbara Boehme, both members of the East Bay Regional Park District Mounted Patrol, ride on a trail at Brushy Peak Regional Preserve in Livermore, Calif., on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014. A Mounted Patrol volunteer can patrol any EBRPD park and while out on the trail they answer questions from visitors, help anyone in need of assistance and report anything out of the ordinary. Other than the Mounted Patrol, the EBRPD has four other volunteer patrol groups: the Bicycle Patrol, the Hiking Patrol, the Companion Dog Patrol, and the Marine Safety Unit.(Doug Duran/Bay Area News Group)
