CAMP ROSS NOTES

Now Near This! As mentioned in the December Obsidian, there will be a high altitude pack-in Summer Camp in 1971.

It is located in the Eldorado Nt'l Forest in California, Lake Tahoe area.

The Desolation Valley Primitive Area more or less borders the south-west side of Lake Tahoe.

For those who have already dug up maps of the area and are wondering just where camp will be - listen carefully.

From south Tahoe follow highway 89 around West side to Emerald Bay. There at Eagle Falls Campground the trail starts, and 4½ miles later (not 7-8) you will be in the Velma Lakes Basin and Camp Ross.

Look and think about this beautiful never-been-in-to-area-before and we will discuss it further.

So now let's all give a moment's silence to a small group of individuals called "your camp committee". -Those who have braved untold hardships as vanguards in unfamiliar country, so that you who follow will have a much easier trail -

CAMP ROSS - cont.

to guide you. (Sorry, Editor, guess I got carried away by the holiday season.) Anyhow, we will have a rundown of the committee, etc. next time.

- Chairman Lloyd Plaistad
