Description
A woman on a dog sled in the snow with four dogs visible harnessed to the sled. A man is carrying the American flag and several others are gathered around him and the woman in a clearing. There are trees in the background. Big Pines Recreation Camp (elevation 6,862) was developed in 1923 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Department of Parks and Recreation. It became a year-round resort with crowds of up to 10,000 on many weekends. Big Pines is located four miles west of Wrightwood in the Angeles National Forest. In 1940 Los Angeles County transferred the land to the U.S. Forest Service. Big Pines continues to be a popular recreation area, with three ski resorts, campgrounds and Jackson Lake.
