SIERRA CLUB NATIONAL OUTING
To register and find out more information, please go to:
We will sample natural and cultural features of the Tahoe-Donner basin. Our hikes will explore centuries of pathways through the High Sierra. We'll see splendid vistas, spend time at a pristine mountain lake and kayak on Lake Tahoe, and eat lunch each day with a view. We'll learn how the Donner Pass area influenced the history of the West, and our visit to the Tahoe Science Center will enhance our understanding of the human impact on the watershed.
We will return to the lodge for hot showers, hearty home-cooked meals, and camaraderie. One day our medley of activities will include a meal at Shakespeare’s Kitchen, not included in the cost of the outing, before we take our seats at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. Other evenings we’ll be at the lodge where we can relax in the common room or outside around the campfire, hear a reading from Mark Twain’s observations of Lake Tahoe in the early 1860s, and have a conservation conversation together.
