Studebaker in Circle Tour Through Sequoia, Yosemite, and Tahoe
By C. PUBCELL SCOTT
California might be searched far
nnd wide for a two weeks’ vacation
tour that will compare with the cir
cle trip from El Centro through the
Sequoia National Park, Yosemite,
Lake Tahoe region, and return by
Sacramento, San Francisco ami the
coast.
Possibly there Is no other trip
that, combines so’great a variety of
scenery, for such a trail leads
through the largest trees in the
world, the incomparable Yosemite,
the Mark Twain and Bret Harte
country, the romantic emigrant
trails of our fore-fathers.
The first leg of our jaunt takes
us over to Bakersfield, thence to
Delano, Porterville and the Sequoia
National Park by the old road.
Darkness had overtaken us by the
time we had reached the last check
ing station, where we -were assign
ed to our campsite at the base of
a giant tree for the night.
The Giant Forest and many other
interesting trees, Boro Roe. kand
Hanging Rock were visited in the
afternoon.
The next morning we left the
park and set out for Yosemite Val
ley. Leaving lhe state highway at
Merced and following the Mormon
Bar road we soon arrived at Wa
wona, and soon gained our first
glimpse of the famous valley. The
most independent way to see Yose
mite is to use your own camping
equipment near Merced river.
A Day in Yosemite
Mirror Lake at sunrise presented
an unforgettable sight and then
came Glacier Point.’ From there
we looked down upon the bqautifu)
Merced below.
A day may be well spend in mak
ing a thorough tour of the* floor of
the valley on both sides of the
Merced river, from Happy Isles, at
the east end of the valley to Po
hona bridge at the west. Trips to
El Portal, Mariposa Grove and the
all-day trip to Heteh-Hetchy Val
ley will prove well worth the time
spent.
When we left • the • valley • by; fjfe
Big Oak Flat road we took the
one to the right, the Tioga road,
the scene wonder of the Sierras.
Lake Tonaya soon commanded our
attention. We soon skirted the
edge of Tenava’s blue waters and
reached the Toulumne Meadows six
miles beyond.
A few miles further on we enter
ed the Tioga Pass, a road leading
to Miono Lake. Although Mono
Lake is not an inviting looking
body of water, it will bear closer
inspection. Here is the logical place
to spend the night, at McPherson’s
Camp, a day’s drive from Yosemite.
After Mono Lake comes Bridgeport
and after a short drive wo reach
the canyon of the Walker river. The
road leads on past Interstate Lake
into Nevada and back again into
California, where we soon reached
the Tahoe region. ,
Lake Tahoe and its fascinating
environs present a territory (that
will satisfy the ardent outdoor en
thusiast, or fascinate those who seek
it as a .place of rest. Wp passed
'.rl "• I. : 4
Emerald Bay and followed (lie toad
that winds down to the lake’s edge
Two Good Camps
The hotels and-resons on the lake
are many, yet there are few that
really cater to .the camper. Two
eamps, the one of Meek's Bay, and
the one maintained by the govern
ment, are especially designed for
the man with tent and camping
equipment. The Tahoe free camp
ground is located two miles south
of the tavern. When the camper
drives in, he is personally conduct
ed to the site. He is then shown
.where wood and water may be ob
tained. This park boasts of free
shower baths and dressing tents at
the lake’s edge; in fact, everything
to, make the visitor’s stay a most
r>le..s.int cue.
Leaving Tahoe, we drove through
Truckee and started our ride to
[Sacramento. Donner Lake, with the
monument erected to the memory
of the Donner party, was soon
sighted. Passing by the lake, we
rapi.Uy jppioached the summit,
THE IMPERIAL VALLEY PRESS
. i 4
’where a wonderful view of the lake
1 was obtained. We followed along
i the South Yuba, at Emigrant Gap
we stopped a moment to view the
old emigrant trail, that drops down
into Bear valley.
Then we swiftly glided along in
our Studebaker big six with our
modern camping equipment to
Dutch Flat, Grass Valley and Sac
ramento, where we paid a visit to
[ historic old Fort Sutter.
From Sacramento it was but a
i few hours’ drive to San Francisco,
[where we turned south on the trail
I set by the padres, the El Camino
Real. By leaving this highway
near San .lose, an interesting trip
may be taken through the Big Bas
in country, Santa Cruz and Watson-
I ville, again joining the main high
way at Salinas, where the pave
ment leads back to Los Angeles
and El Centro.
