Lone Pine Canyon and Highway 138
Here are pictures from June 2009 when driving from the mountains back to Pasadena via Wrightwood and State Highway 138. An interesting option is to take the road through Lone Pine Canyon from Wrightwood to Highway 138. On this occasion, Lone Pine Canyon was adorned with Flannel Bush in bloom. Along Highway 138, which is in the desert, the peak of spring had passed — we saw only a fraction of what this area has to offer floristically — but it was nevertheless rewarding.
