The frosty view from Silver Lake*

Sandy Driscoll of Silver Lake awoke this morning to a view of the snow-capped San Garbriels from her bedroom window. Many other Eastside residents are enjoying the same scenes today following Monday’s rains and – at the higher elevations – snow.

* Update:  This morning’s mountain view (below) as seen from East Los Angeles and photographed by C.J. Salgado.


  1. That snow-capped mountain in the distance – the one with the barely-visible antennas – is Mount Lukens, and it’s accessible via a 2-1/2 to 3-hour hike from Deukmejian Park, via the Rim of the Valley Trail. (I hiked it for the first time a few weeks ago, and I’m planning on hiking to Mount Lukens this Saturday morning around 8:30 A.M.) Incidentally, it seems that the snow has melted since yesterday; I live in La Crescenta and the snow is no longer visible.

  2. Thanks very much for the info, James! I’ve been looking at that view for 30 years and always thought it was Mount Wilson. 🙂

  3. Here’s a link to a short video I took from the top of Mount Lukens last month. Pardon the cinematography (or, better said, lack of cinematographic skills).
