Still unchecked on my national park "to-do" list is a winter visit to Sequoia National Park with snowshoes and XC skis in tow. The folks at Wuksachi Lodge are trying to entice me with winter specials.
Of course, how "special" these rates are is a pretty subjective thing. We're talking nearly $200 a night in some cases. But the setting is hard to beat, as the Giant Forest with its big trees is right around the corner. And calling the park home during the holidays -- if they're snowy -- wouldn't be the worst of escapes.
