From the Redwoods to the Gold Country to the Beach
Starting with the Saints of San Francisco and Golden Gate Park, we expand onward to visit giant redwoods and rugged beaches.
The heart of this journey is in the Gold Country, of California’s wild Sierra Mountains. Here we will experience Native American culture at the Indigenous People’s Day and visit a local community with talking circles, sweat lodges and native crafts.
Traveling back to the coastal mountains we spend a few nights tucked into the rustic cabins of Big Basin, nestled under a canopy of the magnificent redwoods. We’ll visit Santa Cruz and play at the beach.
