Default Suggestion for Another Bay Area Meet/BBQ

We can do this one on even the hottest weekends- Henry Cowell Park in Felton, CA. This park has several VERY large picnic areas with grills, tables, water, and restrooms close by. The picnic areas have the deepest shade imaginable- so many tall trees that you can't see the sky. The Fit owners from the Central Valley might appreciate the cool, quiet ambiance of this location.

In about a 10 minute walk from the picnic area, there is the Redwood Grove Trail that takes about 30 minutes to walk the trail. You can see redwood trees over 200 feet tall, and can go inside the tree where Col. John C. Fremont lived through a winter on his exploration of a route across the U.S. to the Pacific Ocean in the early 1840's. This is the "Ewok Forest" that was used to film one of the Star Wars SciFi movies. Fremont's success helped to fuel the Gold Rush in 1849, and helped California to become separated from Spain.

I have been taking visitors to this park for over 25 years, and did not even know that the large picnic areas existed until last weekend. If we meet early for breakfast, we can go down to Santa Cruz and take Hwy. 9 from its beginning up the twisty drive to the park entrance. There are two huge picnic areas, one at "lot 3" and one at "lot 4". Both parking lots have room for over 100 cars, and the cars are within view of all of the picnic sites.

And, here's a great place for our next breakfast to start the day off----

So, Bay Area Forum members, pick your day. No hurry- we have all summer.
