San Gabriel Mountains National Monument

Some good news for the preservation of whatever remains of the Mount Lowe Railway. According to this U. S. Forest Service post,

“On Oct. 10, 2014, President Barack Obama designated 346,177 acres of existing federal lands as the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, the eighth national monument under Forest Service management.” And in particular, “The monument holds evidence of more than 8,000 years of human history, including more than 600 archeological sites, three of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as ruins of old cabins and the Mount Lowe Railway.”
