April 9-14 Stagecoach Days
After leaving Tucson we proceeded to Park Sierra in Coarsegold where we stayed for a week for Stagecoach Days. They had a lot planned for the week with 3 dinners,3 breakfasts and lots of activities. There was a parade, casino night, dutch oven cooking, wine tasting party and lots more. We participated in most everything and had a great time. I took a hayride and wildflower talk and learned a lot about all the various flowers. We also had a great time at casino night. At the end of the evening everyone counted up their chips and prizes were given away. I didn't have much left so didn't win anything but had fun. We also attended the Dutch oven cooking demonstration and had lots to eat afterwards. Laurie used 9 different Dutch ovens and prepared Lasagna, bread, Chicken casserole, corn bread, 3 different deserts, and I don't remember what the other 2 recipes were. It was delicious. We also attended the wine tasting party and had a variety of wines to choose from. A good time was had by all. It was a busy 5 days and we needed a break after all was done.
