Photograph of a view of a snowy slope at Big Pines Recreation Camp campsites, [s.d.]. At left, a stand of three tall trees can be seen, while at right, snow blankets the slope that dips into the background, where more trees can be seen. In the distance, mountain ridges can be seen below.; "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.
