San Gabriel Mountains Backrange, January 24, 2010

Nice view of the backrange of the San Gabriel Mountains, taken earlier today from near the 4,000 foot level, Old Mount Wilson Toll Road.

The most pathetic snow picture ever

The story on the front page of the SGV Tribune today is the same one on the front page of their website. It features the most pathetic example of snow play I have ever seen.

Much better snow could be had from the front range, but you would have had to walk about 3.5 miles up the Old Mt. Wilson Toll Road, from Eaton Canyon. One-half to one mile past Henninger Flats, the snow got pretty deep.

Oooh, new snow.
