Tour Archives

This page lists tours planned by Tim Baker, Ken Barker and Dwight Hutton.  If you would like to plan a tour (and please do!) you might get inspiration from the past.  You can start with a tour the GPMC has taken, then change the starting point, points in between, and/or the destination.  You can also start from scratch with somewhere you’ve enjoyed visiting or somewhere you would like to go.

Please share your ideas with Tim “the tour man” Baker at: activities@gpmc.org.
