Located in La Crescenta, California, this is a very pretty spot to visit and photograph, and is also the beginning of several hiking trails, that, if you have the youth and stamina, will take you halfway into space. The trails starting here intersect with trails going deep into the San Gabriel Mountains. Maps and preparation required.
Also at Deukmejian Wilderness Park is the 1914 George Le Mesnager Barn and a vinyard. Every year, the Glendale Historical Society makes a few barrels of wine here. The gardener says it’s very sour. La Crescenta is now part of Glendale.
Here, on weekends, you will find artists, and art classes doing landscapes. The views are excellent. Also, for those of you who have to worry about this, the public toilet is clean(!!), have handicapped access, and washed every day. The Camera used for the photos is a 1950 Fedka. I looked up the serial number on Google, and it’s, coincidentally, my birth year.
