Join us for our newest installment of Freak Fossils, where we will be exploring the fossil-rich Sierras and hopefully doing some (moderately) scary scrambles. On Saturday we will getting an early start to head up to BLM land near the Lake Isabella area. We will be spending the day driving around, doing a combination of fossil hunting, exploring, hiking, and maybe even a little scrambling. At night we will head over to Lake Isabella to join the other Basecamp trips where we will be winning the cooking competition. We’re gonna spend the night at Lake Isabella hanging with the rest of our SCO friends, have a relaxed morning, and then head back to LA relatively early so we’re back at USC by 2:00 PM.
