San Gabriel Mountains

Since I currently spend as much time as possible in the San Gabriel Mountains I thought to create an album which features panoramic pictures of the peaks in this mountain range. This album is therefore a piece in progress and I will add pics as I explore more of these beautiful mountains.

A lot of people

don't realize how close these mountains are to LA. Or, a lot
of people don't realize how close LA is to these mountains.
Is there an echo in here? Thanks for sharing!

Re: A lot of people

You are absolutely correct. The mountains are part of the range that circles the LA basin and an important climate barrier. If you hike in these mountains you will find absolute peacefulness and forget the city immediately. My personal piece of heaven.

San Gabriels

i agree, SoCalHiker. Before moving to Washington State in 2006, I spent over 50 years hiking in the San Gabriels--climbing most all the peaks above 5000 ft. Notable exceptions are Ross, Iron Mtn., Rattlesnake, and Sugarloaf. I am continually amazed that this mountain haven and wilderness is just a few miles north of 20 million people!

Re: San Gabriels

thanks. The geographical proximity to LA and yet the feeling of being far away is quite amazing. Cheers.
