Have you started drinking hot cocoa yet?  Have you pulled out your scarf?  Here in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks we certainly have!  The mornings are frosty and there are crisp, clear skies over the peaks!  We have even had our very first dustings of snow.  Why not come play in the snow with us this winter?  Get ready for a naturally magical holiday season in the national parks.  We’ve picked the most picturesque seasonal trails for  memory-making experiences.   We’ll provide sturdy snow shoes and an expert guide for our fun EdVentures.  Please email us at SFI@sequoiahistory.org for more details.  You can sign up for these trips at www.sequoiahistory.org.  We look forward to seeing you on the trail!

January 26, 2013  Full Moon Snow Shoe Walk.
Have you ever wondered what the forest is like after the sun sets? Join us for an almost after-dark EdVenture down the Moro Rock/Crescent Meadow Road. The focus of this walk will be on winter travel. We will talk about proper gear and clothing to keep you safe and warm as you explore the forest in winter. This walk will start at the Giant Forest Museum and will be moderately fast paced (it gets cold when you move too slowly) on a well used snow shoe trail past some of the biggest of the Big Trees. We will take time for a snack at the Parker Group, continue to the Tunnel Log, say a quick thank you to Steven Mather at the memorial plaque, and then head back to the Giant Forest Museum parking lot. We will take about four hours to walk the approximately three mile route. Limit of 10 people.  $45 SNHA members/$52 non-member.  Snow shoes included.  Expert guide included.   Rated:  Moderate 

These and more trips will be available in 2013.  Watch www.sequoiahistory.org for more information.  All proceeds from our trips support education and resource protection in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
