Photograph looking down into Cedar Canyon from Big Pines Recreational Camp, 1925. Pine trees can be seen on mountainsides at left and right. They form a narrow valley down center. Several trees line the floor of the valley. A large mountain dotted with vegetation can be seen in the distance.; "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.
