Saturday Tour

For those visitors wanting to get away for a bit, we've planned a nice tour for you.

Date: Saturday, April 13, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Cost: $40.00 - includes lunch

Please meet the bus right outside the Convention Center (the usual place) at 9:00am SHARP.  The bus will leave at 9:30am with or without you.  

This year’s Saturday Tour is taking us up into the Sequoia National Park to view the BIG TREES.  If you've never been it will amaze you.  If you have been before it will still amaze you. 

The General Sherman Tree is the world's largest tree, measured by volume. It stands 275 feet (83 m) tall, and is over 36 feet (11 m) in diameter at the base. Sequoia trunks remain wide high up. Sixty feet above the base, the Sherman Tree is 17.5 feet (5.3 m) in diameter.  The trail runs half a mile (0.8 km) to the tree. It has a few stairs and is paved. As you walk, you'll enter the Giant Forest sequoia grove. Exhibits along the trail explain the natural history of giant sequoias. The trail is wheelchair-accessible. A fence protects the shallow roots of the Sherman Tree. Please help us protect the tree by staying on the paved trail.

From there we will bus over to the Wuksachi Lodge for lunch.  You have several choices so please be sure to contact me as soon as you register, to let me know what you want to eat. 

Every national park has its top lodge; the one place to stay that reflects all the park stands for.  The Wuksachi Lodge is Sequoia’s signature hotel, a striking stone-and-cedar mountain lodge situated in the heart of the park.  The Lodge was built in 1999 in a spectacular alpine setting at an elevation of 7,200 feet.

It can get cold so be sure to bring a sweater or jacket.  Also even though the trail is paved you will need to wear good walking shoes.

Please contact me as soon as you register.  Your lunch choices are: 

Choose one:

  1. Grilled Chicken sandwich
  2. Large Caesar Salad
  3. Large Chopped Salad (with or without Grilled Chicken)
    Romaine Lettuce, turkey, bacon, red onion, corn, egg, chickpeas, sherry-thyme vinaigrette dressing.

Park regulation state that a smaller bus is used to enter the park, therefore space is LIMITED.  BE SURE TO REGISTER FOR THE TOUR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  SEATS WILL BE ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED BASIS
