6/3/11 Angels Crest Highway Open to Wrightwood!!!!!

Yes, the Angeles Crest Highway (SR 2) is now open.  You can now drive all the way from the 210 Freeway east to the 138 through the Angeles National Forest.  Of course you will want to stop at Newcomb’s Ranch for a drink or something to eat.  From Newcomb’s the Angeles Crest Highway traverses the High Country.  This is some of the most spectacular county of the Angeles.  The picture to the left was taken in the Buckhorn area on 6/3/11 it is a great shot of a snow plant.  This time of the year there are many of these along the highway.  Also keep an eye out for the Bighorn Sheep in the area around the tunnels.  Best time to see them is early in the morning or an hour or so before dusk.  Then continue east to the town of Wrightwood and plan on sometime there to walk the streets and see the shops and restaurants.

Just think of this beautiful county is just a short drive from you home.  I think of this as my big backyard.  It is hard to beleive that you are still in So. Ca.

I hope you have a great trip
