This is a view of Mt Baldy as seen from Alpine. The mountain is sometimes called Alpine Baldy. The old annual reports of the Nippon/Alpine Lumber Company would include a note about the last date that snow was visible on Baldy, and the first date that snow fell on it again. One year the snow was gone on July 8 and fresh snow fell on August 10. This photo was taken on June 10, 2009 and snow is still visible. The brown (bald) area is distinct because of a lack of trees and gives Baldy its name. Grass grows there during the short summer and the brown area turns green. Mt Baldy is 5400 feet in elevation, about 3600 above Alpine, across the valley on the slopes of Mt Sawyer. Photo taken June 10, 2009 by Melissa Logstrom.
