Photograph of campers making snowman at a large gathering of people at picnic grounds, Big Pines Recreational Camp, [s.d.]. Four people, at least one of whom is a child, can be seen making a snowman at center. Three spheres comprise the body and head. The snowman features eyes, a mouth, a scarf, arms, buttons, and a small pine tree branch sticking out of its head. The people all wear boots, pants, sweaters or jackets, and caps. Pine trees can be seen behind them, while snow can be seen on the ground throughout.; "In 1923, Los Angeles county established a major recreational facility at Big Pines, an all year resort that included winter and summer sports. Big Pines Recreation Camp (elevation 6,862 feet) had cabins, dining room, fountain and store. Many of the buildings still stand (most notably one of the two stone towers that once supported a pedestrian overpass across Highway 2, west of Wrightwood). Now administered by the U.S. Forest Service, Big Pines continues to be a popular recreation area encompassing three ski resorts, several campgrounds and Jackson Lake." -- unknown author.
