Lost In Shangri La

Friday, March 14, 2008

This Saturday, March 15th, SCGT’s weekly ride will take us to the recently-opened Shangri La Botanical Gardens in Orange, Tx. Preceding that, there will be a nice lunch at Spanky’s (Ed‘s pick this time). For more info, just click on the picture of the Great Egret and Tortoise below. Oh, yes, don’t forget to bring your binoculars!

This is an excerpt from the “About” section of the Shangri La web page:

“…Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center offers a glimpse of how people can live in harmony with nature. The combination of gardens and nature at Shangri La presents a serene oasis for retreat and renewal, as well as the opportunity to explore, discover and learn.”

Construction began in 2002, but Hurricane Rita caused much damage in 2005 and further delayed the Grand Opening, which took place earlier this week on Tuesday. Get on your scooters and let’s go explore Shangri La, and may we all live happily forever.–Lorenzo
