If they don't have to be landscapes, here is an Icehouse Canyon columbine.

They can be anything. But to be considered you must list five like I did.
Any pic on this topic is fair game.
Hike up I listed the pics I liked in order and the only way I could figure out how to ID them was to copy and paste the link to the page along with the poster and number of his pic.
simonovs last pic is killer.

Go a little wider on that shot and you get Bighorn, Etiwanda, and Cucamonga.

Nah, I figured out how to change it. If bothered to change it too often, I will change it to reflect whatever random thought comes into my head at that moment, be it a bus full of clowns going over a jump, or a hamburger. Or, Twin Peaks. Or, a metaphorical Twin Peaks.

I put up a shot I took of the Bowl a while ago.

If anyone has a cool submission that has some writing in it (photosh00p skillzZ), post it here.

Since it's hot out right now, a picture that evokes a cool, mountain environment is preferred.  8)

I'm not even sure I know what you're talken about.  Are you talking about the picture that is next to the "San Gabriel Mountains Discussion Forum" title of this board?

Are you looking for a "non" snowy picture of something in the San Gabriels for the spring, summer, fall months?

I just saw Rick Kent's TR of his Iron Mtn to Baldy traverse.  He's got like 200 shots.  Some of them are really nice.  maybe you can ask him for one of his pictures.  Take a look at image #8655 and #8674.  It's only one of several dozen that are nice.
There is no place for me in this world, Chanchito, I don't belong out there and I don't belong here. So I'm going into the wilderness, probably to die. I hope to see you again Chancho, maybe in the next life.

Good pic, especially the 'clipless' shoes that double as ski boots. :D

YO

FWI, if anyone wants to submit a new header picture, 450x150 pixels is the best size, JPEG format. Bonus points if it says 'SGMDF' or something snazzy and relevant on it.

Congrats Norma, this is a great photo. White and blue goes well together. Too bad we won't be seeing those colors around here again for awhile.

God, I hate the heat. I can't wait for it to be fall already.

i hate the heat too.  i find it funny when people say they can't wait for the snow to melt so they can get back out and hike!  i prefer hiking in snow, but i gotta admit you can't beat the Sierra backcountry in summer.  pretty outstanding.

i hiked my local mountain Boney Mountain on Saturday and nearly passed out.  it was insane.  felt like i was in an oven.

Dave G and i beat the heat yesterday by hiking Baden-Powell, Burnham and Troop.  We even placed a new register on Burnham.  San G-er's need to get up there and sign it!  To keep us cool we filled our bandanas with snow and tied them around our necks and kept snow in our hats.  we ain't no dummies!  i'll post pix as soon as i load them.

thanx for using the photo Taco!  it was chance that i caught the snow falling.

I can see the humor in it (yeah, gallows humor), but the average person would probably be offended.    

Just a thought, but that would look neat if it said "Death Valley National Park" on the sign.  Considering the weather out there this time of year, 'ya wonder why the signs on the main entrance roads don't just spontaniously combust in the Valley's heat.
