The San Gabriel Mountains Forever Act, authored by Rep. Judy Chu, D-Pasadena, would add 2,027 acres to the existing San Gabriel Wilderness north of Azusa and 13,851 acres to the Sheep Mountain Wilderness near Wrightwood, while creating the Yerba Buena Wilderness of 6,774 acres and the Condor Peak Wilderness with 8,417 acres in remote western sections of the forest. more
