Climate Change in Southern CA: north Face Mt San Antonio 10,064′ from Blue Ridge Road

DSCN1967 DSCN1970 DSCN1971 DSCN1972I drove the road after a 4.5 mile round trip hike to Blue Ridge campsite at c 8000 feet elevation from Inspiration Point. I found that the snow conditions paralleled those reported by Governor Brown recently in the Sierra of California: where I should have seen a large snowpack, there was almost none even above 9000 feet on Mt Baldy. It is as if an entire season had vanished, winter replaced by spring in the high country.http://www.wrightwoodca.com/wrightwood-camping/campground.php?view&campground=7

BTW: be careful if you drive this road- it lies on a knife -ridge in sections and might damage your vehicle with rocks and other debris if you don’t carefully control your speed (ATV’s and high-clearance vehicles best).
