going along with a big group has never been my thing, especially with 4 children, a pregnant woman, and a few others in their high 30's. however, it's been a while since my last visit to big bear. during the memorial weekend, i was able to get a lot done and visit alot of places by myself and along with a couple of friends. while most of them were still sleeping (until 9:30am) i was able to get out early at 6 and enjoy fresh air and some really nice views.
everyone left on sunday for work and school, but stephanie and i stay until monday. we took this opportunity to get some bomb! breakfast, go hiking, drive around the lake, watch the sunset and stroll around the village of big bear.
7:00 am at big bear lake
moonridge coffee has the best pumpkin spice latte i've had. they also carry local root beer and soda, which i didn't pick up. but i'll definitely come back next time
flying his freex skyview drone.
hiking at cougar crest trail (5-6 miles round trip). if i remember correctly, i slip and almost trip 8 times.
.25 miles left to the peak. this trail has some chairs around the edge to rest and to gaze at nature.
