the Santa Ysabel Hotel. What I wished is, that you suggest a trip that would cover the grandest features at the least expense, or that you refer me to books and pamphlets giving facts with regard to timetables and routes, sleeping accomodations and expense. It is unfortunate that on such a trip one must count the cost. But even in our most glorious flights we must, at least, start from a mundane sphere. I wished to get a day in the most famous big tree section - whether that is Calaveras or Mariposa County, or in the Park itself. I also was struck with the idea of climbing your Glacial Monument and the view from Mt [Pana?].It would render me a great service if you could find a moment to advise me out of the store of your knowledge. Remember, I am not looking for mountain climbing of the parlour variety. My wife and I are eager for the real experience.Very truly yuors,Charles E. Chapman,Sausalito,Cal.04045
