So. Utah Foliage Tour - Sponsored by Porsche Salt Lake City
THE TIME IS NOW TO PLAN AHEAD FOR AN EPIC 3-DAY TOUR
The more important part of this announcement is to introduce an epic three-day tour in September. Commencing around noon on Friday September 23rd, and arriving home around the dinner hour on Sunday September 25th. We are planning a two-night stay in Torrey, Utah. On Saturday we will be driving a “loop” from Torrey to Bryce National Park and returning on scenic route 12, one of America’s most beautiful drives. Those not interested in the full day tour to Bryce National Park on Saturday, can “force” two tourers to pair up in one car and take the “spare” car on an easy drive over to Capitol Reef State Park for a guided llama hike, petroglyph viewing, horseback riding or even a Cayenne trip further into the parks unpaved reaches.
From a social perspective, this tour has another twist (just like the roads near Torrey). There will be TWO starting points on Friday. One group will depart from the Salt Lake/ Utah Valley area, and the other will depart from St. George. Each will converge on Torrey, Utah around the dinner hour on Friday, and will head home after check out on Sunday.
September is the perfect time to be away from the summer heat and enjoy the changing colors in this part of Utah. That said, hotel reservations for September will book up early. With that in mind, we have selected a “HOST” hotel that has lots of options for types of rooms and length of stay. We looked into booking a block of rooms as well. However, there was no pricing flexibility and the terms of the reservations and cancellations were more stringent than if we all book individually. So we request that you take action NOW, to ensure a place to stay during this two night tour.
This promises to be a really fun, couples and family event, with the opportunity to meet PCA members locally AND from afar. If you are interested, we encourage you to book your reservations NOW. We are selecting a “host” hotel location though there is no official contract or agreement. It is the Capitol Reef Resort. To view the property and book your reservation directly, go to www.capitolreefresort.com . While there are other hotels in the area, this location should have the greatest opportunity for meeting other like-minded Porsche-philes and their families. So mark your calendar and make your reservations now. While reservations require a 50% deposit, you are still able to cancel up to 48 hours before check in.
