We went on a modest hike with Uncle Gerry from Charlton Flats in the Angeles National Forest to see if we could find David and Wynona's tree.  Also on the trip were nephew Mark, Aunt Peggy, who was sidelined by a foot injury, Mig, Lex and Duva.  The weather was nice and the yuccas were in bloom.  We did find the tree, and while it was no longer alive, it still stood towering above the landscape.  Some second generation growth has started up at the base.  There are a lot of nice picnic areas at the start of the hike.

The Forest Service website notes, "The Angeles National Forest was established by Executive Order in December 1892. It covers about 700,000 acres and is the backyard playground to the huge metropolitan area of Los Angeles."
