Jim,

The fridge is an old Servel (brand) from the 1950's that runs on the propane that the donkeys pack in, and in the old days they used butane. Many of the cabins have these, although some are "newer" like you would find in an RV. The crank phone does work and it is connected to the other cabins, as well as Sturtevant's Camp and Adams' Pack Station. The phone system is thought to be the last of its kind in the US, after a town in Maine got "real" phones around 1985. The phones are a ten-mile party line where anyone can listen in. For that reason I dubbed it CT&T (Canyon Telephone & Tell everyone). The call boxes in BigSAC are also connected. One ring for the pack station (and emergencies), two for Sturtevant's, and three rings means everyone picks up.

Somewhere online I found photos of old trail signs from Big Santa Anita Canyon. These were the government issue before Glen Owens and the Big Santa Anita Historical Society replaced them with new etched stone tile signs in the... early 90's?

These would look good on the wall of the pantry inside my garage but, alas, I am not allowed to own such federal property; even if it would have been tossed in the garbage long ago. I wonder what ever happened to those signs?

It's a mystery where things like that go, isn't it?  Glad you found those pics, um, on the internet.

I've seen those - very cool! Also, a backdoor here on satellite images for the transverse ranges (including the San Gabes) @http://130.166.124.2/ca_panorama_atlas/page5/page5.html, as well as the rest of California (left column links).

That big alluvial fan on the right is from the great Wrightwood slide.

Unfortunately, I feel like this photo sums up the SG's in a lot of ways.

They were taken on Mt. Baldy about a month ago.

I use film because my classic SLRs are ridiculously durable in all conditions.

Heavier but worth it.

p.s

How did you get the pictures to show!?

I used the img function but it didn't show up.

You have to link to the jpg's themselves not the page that the jpg's are on.

Pretty cool B&W.

Mt. San Jacinto, I believe?

The picture was taken in early April on a Delta flight to LAX, approximately 30 minutes after crossing the California border.
