***June 2019 MPC Photography Outing***
Where: Jack London State Park and Quarryhill Botanical Garden
Date: Tuesday, June 25th @ 9am
This excursion starts at 9 am at Jack London State Park in Glen Ellen.
What was once Jack London’s dream house is now an extensive ruin that has been described as a “burned out Ahwanhee Hotel”. At 10:30 we will be joined by a Park docent who will speak about the Wolf House and Jack London’s life.
After Jack London SP, we’ll stop for lunch (TBD).
The afternoon continues at Quarryhill Garden a few miles from Glen Ellen, north on Highway 12. Quarryhill Garden is one of the most botanically diverse spots in Sonoma and a place of varying beauty throughout the seasons. The website is loaded with information and maps as well as an “In the Garden” page that shows what’s blooming by season. http://www.quarryhillbg.org/

The meeting location is the museum parking lot at 9:00 am on June 25, which is the first left turn after entering the park. The park opens at 9:00. There is a $10 per vehicle entrance fee. A dirt track leads to the Wolf House ruins.
