Photograph of a mountainside cabin near Big Pines Recreational Camp, [s.d.]. At left, a one-story cabin is situated on arid ground at the edge of a mountain ridge. To the left, other mountains in the range can be seen just past a few sparse trees. At center, a cylinder that appears to be the bottom of a rocket is positioned on a slab of concrete.; "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.
