Base Camp Book, 1950
This book documents the 1950 Sierra Club Base Camp outings, held at the upper basin of the Middle Fork of Bishop Creek in Inyo Country, California, near the city of Bishop. Like those of past Base Camp trips, this book documents the experiences, scientific gatherings, and recollections of trip participants. It includes 19 black and white photographs of natural scenery, as well as numerous diagrams and hand-drawn maps documenting the camp location and surrounding areas. Additionally, the book contains songs, poems, and creative works, diary excerpts, flora and fauna reports, mountaineering notes, and glaciological studies. This was also the first Base Camp trip to report the serious injury of one of its participants, which is noted in Oliver Kehrlein's opening 'In Appreciation' statement.
