Treks explore Oregon, California history

By From page A4 | July 13, 2014

A four-day tour in south-central Oregon and the wit and humor of Mark Twain are featured in upcoming Davis Travelaires excursions planned for September and October.

The highlight of the Oregon trip, Sept. 2-5, is Crater Lake, featuring a ranger-guided tour around the rim and dinner at the historic lodge. In addition, there will be a jet boat ride through the Rogue River’s Hellgate Canyon; a visit to Jacksonville, the first town in America to be named a National Historic Landmark; and a wildlife safari.

The cost is $800 per person, double occupancy. For a single room, add $220.

America’s iconic writer provides the inspiration when the Fallon House in the historic town of Columbia presents “Mark Twain — A Murder, A Mystery and a Marriage” on Wednesday, Oct. 1. Stories of heroes, heroines and villains, accompanied by fiddling and singing, promise an afternoon of high-spirited fun.

Before the show, the group will enjoy lunch at The Standard Pour in Sonora’s grand Pickering Building. The cost is $120.

Transportation and all gratuities are included in the cost of the trips. To register or for more information, call Kay Jeffery at 530-753-4159.

The treks are sponsored by Davis Travelaires, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, whose aim is to provide travel and recreation opportunities for seniors.
