Photograph of people on horseback in front of the main lodge entrance at Big Pines Recreational Camp, 1925. The two-story lodge can be seen at center. It is a long wooden building with a covered porch that goes around the entire building. Two tall stone chimneys can be seen on the roof. The foundation is made of stone. Three riders are visible at center and are conversing with two people on the porch. In the foreground at left, three men can be seen near four early-model automobiles. Compares to CHS-36362, which shows the same people in slightly different positions.; "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.
