As we neared Los Angeles County over the Tejon Pass, and the Grapevine, we passed more agriculture and viewed the California Aqueduct along the Interstate.
We passed by the cool, beautiful blue Pyramid Lake, located in the San Gabriel Mountains along Interstate 5 approximately 60 miles north of Los Angeles. The reservoir lies on the border between the Angeles National Forest and the Los Padres National Forest in the northwestern portion of Los Angeles County, and is formed by Pyramid Dam on Piru Creek. The earth and rock dam was built in 1973 and the Lake is part of the California Aqueduct and is a major drinking water resource for the Los Angeles area. And for the angler, Pyramid offers a wide variety of fish.
After that it was traffic as usual for L.A. County as we headed for Garden Grove Elks and “home”.
