San Marcos Pass

Solvang is the Danish community at the heart of the scenic Santa Ynez Valley. GPX has arranged a tour to the area on Saturday April 25th.  The tour will begin in Ventura at our usual rendezvous point, Carrow's Restaurant.

The route will follow Highway 154, the San Marcos Pass, with a look-see at the famous Cold Spring Tavern.

We'll have a rest stop in Los Olivos, and then try some of the country roads winding among the local wineries, which include some famous names.

A smorgasbord lunch has been arranged at the Bit O'Denmark Restaurant in the center of town.  Lunch will be a fixed price, with tax and tip included, for $25.00 per head, paid in advance.

Everyone is free to follow their own wishes after lunch.  Some will stay in Solvang and shop, others will head for home.  Some may find their own sight-seeing path in the vacinity.  At least one of your tourmeisters proposes to stay overnight in neaby Buellton, and on Sunday visit the famously restored Mission Purisma near Lompoc. Tag-alongs are welcome.

In addition, GPX member Alan Johnson has suggested a couple of local wineries that we can visit after lunch.
