Los Angeles, California

From katielucie for the June 2010 RR

Celestial alignment sets the stage for dramatic view of downtown Los Angeles as a full moon rises behind the San Gabriel Mountains at sunset, according to the back of the card. What I want to know is, how many days out of the year can you see these mountains, and how many days are they covered by smog? I've only been to LA once, but I definitely don't remember it being this beautiful–this makes it look almost as nice as Seattle. :P

The San Gabriel Mountains are north of LA and separate the city from the Mojave Desert. The highest peak in the range is Mt. San Antonio, commonly referred to as Mt. Baldy.

The stamp is the 2009 definitive for the domestic small postcard rate, a polar bear illustrated by Nancy Stahl.
