Goin Jeepin

December 27, 2009
Todd, Mom, and Dad took our Jeeps out for a spin and explored a
remote area of the forest.  We went up Hwy 138 then up Forest
Road 2N49 and back down on 2N43.  We went up to Cajon
Mountain where there is an old fire lookout.  We moved a bunch of
rocks that had fallen on the road, picked up two bags of trash, had
fun driving through some icy sections, and marveled at the
excellent views of Silverwood Lake and the higher mountains in the
San Gabriel and San Bernardino ranges.
A few Big Cone Douglas Fir survived the last fire in this area

Cajon Mountain Lookout is missing its platform and cab - the
Forest Fire Lookout Association is raising money to rebuild it
