see google imagery 2016. This area is called Opids Camp and is one of the wettest places in southern California, average precip somewhere around what Seattle gets though almost all in winter and subject to the yearly variation of southern California. it almost looks like the Pacific Northwest in here and the bigcone LOVES it as does bay, oak, etc. Some sugar pines and incense cedar may sneak down too but this is a patch of bigcone here, very visible on air photos. Neat place that hasn't been explored enough at least on inat
