The Echo Mountain Promonotory (ca. 1896) after a snowfall, and the White City resort of the Mount Lowe Railway as seen from a higher spot on the ridge and overlooking Altadena, CA. Buildings viewed from left to right: The Echo Chalet, Echo Mountain House, Incline Powerhouse, Dormitories, and Car Barn. Behind the car barn, note an inflatable reservoir for the storage of hydrogen gas produced in Pasadena and piped some 8.5 miles (13.7 km) to Echo. Echo Mountain is also known for its incredible echoes.

Echo Mountain.

June 2 hike with Larry and Robb.  Wild flowers, whose names I wish I knew. Poison Oak. Hesperoyucca whipplei (it used to be a yucca) in bud and bloom. Frolicking in the ruins of the White City (well, I would have frolicked if I hadn’t been too beat from climbing 1400′ to get there).
