road closures

Although Hwy 2 may be closed at Big Pine on the east side temporarily following storms, the road is generally closed for the winter and most of the spring at Vincent Gap. This is several miles farther west and provides access to Baden Powell. Baden Powell would otherwise be nearly inaccessible during these months.

Looks Great

This is a great looking page. My only complaint is the lack of photos. But you do have tons of info and that is more important.

Re: Looks Great

The photos will come. I'm still sifting through all the individual mountain pages for classic shots. The hard part was getting the rest of the info down. Thanks for voting.

close to the nation's largest metro

Wouldn't that be NYC?

Re: close to the nation's largest metro

Last I heard there were about 15 million people in the greater LA area (includes Orange County and the Inland EMpire). I think that's more than NYC.

According to the US Census, the NY greater metro area population is 21.9 million; greater LA is 17.5 million.

Re: MSAs

I stand corrected. The page has been corrected. I still think we've got NYC beat in terms of sprawl...

Just some pics...

...other than that, great page Steve! The high country of the San Gabriels is probably my favourite 'close to home' place. If you're lacking pics of some area's, don't hesitate to mail me. I have lots of shots from my hikes there.

Great looking page!

Great effort here. I grew up in La Canada and these mountains were my old stomping ground. It's amazing how you come to miss things as time passes. This overview page is very helpful as a guide to this area. Thanks.

well done page

my only suggestion would be to add some kind of conditions link(s)--web cams and/or weather info for the general area would be useful.

My Backyard

I love living around these beautiful mountains. I have lived here a long time, I can't believe I didn't start climbing them earlier! DUH! Great Page!
