Vintage Angeles National Forest

A while ago I came across a photo album of my dad's old backpacking trips. My dad used to hike and backpack all around the Angeles National Forest - he is definitely where I get my love for being outdoors!

These photos are such an inspiration. I wish I knew more about each one... I know vaguely where some of them were taken... some near the Bridge to Nowhere, some in the San Gorgonio Wilderness... but other than that, I am not sure! I wish my dad was around so I could ask him about his trips. I'd especially love to find out where that first photo was taken, I'd love to go there!

I posted more photos here.

PS I love his clothes! Those cut off shorts, that sheep skin vest, that trucker hat!

Next time I go to my Grandparents' houses I definitely need to bring a scanner and my computer - they have so many photos of my Dad growing up and they definitely need to be preserved!
