Scouts-L Mail Archive for October of 1998: Adventure in the Sierras
Adventure in the Sierras
Mon, 5 Oct 1998 02:37:06 -0400
The Western Los Angeles County Council is now planning to set up a base camp
and send units on hikes into the Sierra Mountains from their Camp Whitsett.
This should provide an opportunity for those units which were unable to get
into Philmont to take wilderness hikes into the mountains. The Sierras provide
an almost untouched area for hiking. I've also been told that the fishing is
really good up there.
For more information contact the Western Los Angeles County council at
818-785-8700, Camping Department or check the preliminary information on their
website at www.bsa-la.com. As more information about the Whitsett Sierra
Adventures is available it will be posted.
