This is a place in the Angeles National Forest. It is a rugged topography, composed of steep canyons, steep ridges and peaks. These trees grow along a creek bed that is dry for now. If you walk along it you find an rare pool of stagnant water. On the steep slopes the century plant stalks stand out above the chapparal. Tick country. Bears, coyotes and probably mountain lions also dwell here.

The campground is strange. Except for the two dumpsters and the fee paying kiosk, we would have classified it as abandoned. The trash strewn everywhere is shocking in this the most eco conscious of states. This may be the dirtiest National Forest Campground I can recall. Sad.
