On Saturday, September 13, 2014, local author/adventurer/photographer Tony Krizan concludes his series of slide shows featuring his treks on wilderness hiking trails in the mountains in and around Yosemite. The presentation, sponsored by the Yosemite Southgate Hotel & Suites, takes place at 7:30 p.m. in the hotel’s lobby.
Tony continues a discussion of the Old Wawona Stagecoach Road, which formed one of the earliest routes from Wawona to Yosemite Valley.
This is one of many local events scheduled to honor President Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the Yosemite Grant Act on June 30, 1864.
After the presentation, autographed copies of Tony’s two books on hiking those historic Yosemite Trails will be available.
The presentation is open to the public and is free of charge. Guests can enjoy complimentary gourmet cookies and finger pastries provided by Crab Cakes Restaurant in Oakhurst. In conjunction with the presentation, REI of Fresno will display various kinds of extreme hiking equipment in the Southgate Hotel lobby, the same type of equipment Tony would use on one of his many adventures.
