BASECAMP BASECAMP BASECAMP!!!!! woooo join the power duo ella and soogz to the time of your life to 1) tuttle creek ashram 2) alabama hills BASECAMPPPP 3) and possibly a ~ mystery hike ~ (spooky). Leave early Sunday to do a casual 3.5 mile roundtrip hike to the ashram hut (ALTHOUGH be warned, the elevation gain is STEEP for short mileage so get ready to get sweaty). The Ashram hut is an interesting building built by Hindu followers in the 20s, so get ready to learn, enjoy views, escape LA, and so forth.
Then we will hop on over for the time of your life at Alabama hills to met up with a bunch of other awesome SCO trips for BASECAMP (have i said it enough already) to hang out, slackline, eat good food, smores, and more! Camp the night, and head back the next day. easy peasy! Perfect casual 2-day trip during President’s Weekend.
Guarantees: fun times, embarrassing stories about the other guide, yum yum food, good views, new friends <333
