There are couples who jet off for a romantic weekend in Paris. My wife and I aren’t one of those couples. Our getaways are simpler…and closer: Morro Bay, Sonora in Tuolumne County, and Mariposa. We spent a few days in Mariposa for the annual Storytelling Festival, and we had fun, were entertained, and…ate. I don’t have any pictures to show you, but I have memories.
A good place to see different styles of storytelling is the Mariposa Storytelling Festival in Mariposa, California. This year’s 26th annual celebration of the spoken word, March 8-10, features six nationally-known storytellers: Patrick Ball. Donald Davis, Lyn Ford, Angela Lloyd, David Novak, and Laura Pershin Raynor.
This is the third part of a three part series. The trip can actually be done all in one day, or you can break it up into two shorter trips. Trip One: Oakhurst; Trip Two: Oakhurst to Mariposa to Hornitos; Trip Three: Oakhurst to Hornitos to Coulterville.
