I HAVE SO MANY PHOTOS TAKEN OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS

We have been out a lot - both down the mountain and up the mountains.  I thought I would put a few up today since it's cold, rainy, snowy outside and extremely foggy right now.

This was from a walk the other day around part of the Lake Arrowhead Shoreline.  Will put up more later.

I wish a camera could capture the sounds, smells, wind ...all the good stuff that comes with a walk in the mountains.

BIG BEAR THE OTHER DAY

In Big Bear, near "Boulder Bay" the lighting was finally good enough for me to get photos of the big houses across the way.  Usually the way the sun hits they are in shadow and I never get good photos.

SOME PHOTOS YESTERDAY FROM A WALK ALONG THE SHORELINE - LAKE ARROWHEAD

Last time i walked here the water was several feet down and the floating docks were low so I could see across to the other shoreline easily - it was strange seeing the docks up so high.  It was a gorgeous walk - and these are the days I feel much gratitude  to be here.

IN OVER SIX YEARS SINCE LIVING HERE

AT THE BEGINNING OF WINTER 2018 TO 2019 THE LAKE LEVEL WAS DOWN NINE FEET.

I've never seen the lake at full capacity - it is officially a full lake now.  One time I saw it come to the rock wall along the side of the lake where the docks are and the village in the background - and it might have been a foot deep.  Now it's almost at the top of the wall.  And a bigger storm coming tomorrow.

We went there yesterday and it was cold but worth it to see the water level.  Today we will walk one of the areas of the shoreline over there and see what it looks like from a different perspective.  Tomorrow before the next storm comes in we hope to go up to Big Bear to see the lake, and also Baldwin Lake which now has water.  All snow except for the ski areas will be melted so we can get a good walk up there along the shore line also.  SO GLAD we can finally get out and enjoy the reason we love it up here.











Here is the Arrowhead Queen out in the fog - which moved in quickly right before we were leaving.

LOCAL SCENES WHILE DRIVING AROUND YESTERDAY

Near our little town.  Very little snow remaining - only in more shady spots.  Lots of rain today which is good for the forest.
