Beautiful day at Jackson lake in the Wrightwood/Big Pines area caught a couple fish and enjoyed the tranquill peace of the mountain. No place I would rather be.
Come up the lake is full the 1st time in many years.

We met TinMan from Syracuse New York. He is hiking the Pct with the help of Warrior Expeditions. This non profit organization helps war combat veterans transition back into normal life by hiking out the war. Happy hiking TinMan from all of us at Mtn Hardware. #warriorexpeditions #mtnhardware #wrightwood #hikingĀ 


Last week on Monday 4-22-19 took a little hike to Big Horn Mine. But sadly wasn’t able to make it to the Mine because of the land slide took the trail out. On the trail to the mine you have a spectacular view of Pine Mountain and the north side of Mt Baldy. So, for the hike being so short because of the land slide taking the trail out. I decided to go to Mescal Picnic area and walk the wooden bridge which had water flowing underneath it.
Check out the pictures below. All these areas are within just a couple miles of Wrightwood/Big Pines area.
Spring is a great time in the mountains.


Good Morning
It is a beautiful day here in the mountains.
Today Wrightwood Property Owners Group is out on Highway 2 picking up trash to make our town look GREAT. Thank you very much for all the hard work.
Also I saw Caltans picking up thrash in the Big Pines area helping to make everything look good.
I was down at the Jackson Lake this morning and it is FULL. The 1st time in about 5 years. It is looking beautiful, this picture I took this morning.
It would be a great time to go out to the lake for a picnic, BBQ also it would be a fun day to bring up your kayak or inflatable boat and float around on the lake. Of course do not forget to wear your life jacket.
