The Adventure Continues… Wawona

Huell discovers what it was like to visit Yosemite, including the historic Wawona Hotel, in the 19th & early 20th centuries.

Yosemite National Park has seen quite a lot of changes over the years since its creation in 1864.  Most recently, the historic Wawona Hotel in the southern portion of the park changed hands and — ever since March 2016 — has been renamed Big Trees Lodge.

This 30-minute episode of California’s Gold explores a collection of historic structures, as well as some of of the park’s living history guides, that vividly illustrate different chapters in the park’s fascinating past.
