9000ft Mount Baldy...that must be Ontario Airport.

 

HLJAMES

 

The mountain is almost always referred to as "Mount Baldy" by locals, to the point where many would not recognize the name "Mount San Antonio".

The mountain was named by a local rancher after Saint Anthony of Padua. When American settlers arrived and surveyed the land, "Baldy", a reference to the bare fell-field ofBaldy Bowl that dominates the south face visible from Los Angeles, became the predominant name, and it has stuck. Nonetheless, "Mount San Antonio" is the official name according to the GNIS.

 

The summit has two peaks: the main peak, elevation 10,064 feet (3,068 m), and a sub-peak, West Baldy, at 9,988 feet (3,044 m).[4]The main peak marks the boundary between San Bernardino County and Los Angeles County.[5] The mountain is in the Angeles National Forest.

 

Yes the airport is Ontario Int in Ontario California.
