Four Points Bulletin

Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

The San Bernardino National Forest encompasses 824,000 acres of land within San Bernardino and Riverside counties. It ranges in elevation from 2,000 to 11,500 feet. We were camping just south of Big Bear Lake, at about 7,000 feet elevation. From yellow post campsite 30, we could walk to a lake view in about ten minutes. There is no established trail, but it is an easy hike, filled with giant pines, squirrels, birds, and authentic hiking sticks. South Shore Big Bear Lake, where site 30, 29, 28 and 25 can be found, is filled with established hiking trails as well. Next time we come, we need more time.

To quote my daughter, “the mountains are my favorite”.

    Looking at these photos makes me feel that you are next to us in Tahoe. Gorgeous mountain scenery and great exploration. I agree 100% with A1, “The Mountains are my favorite!” too. Great trip. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It is very Tahoe-esque up there. Honestly better than I expected.

    Magnificent Ponderosa pine there! I love those trees. And your daughter’s got it right – “the mountains are my favorite!”

    1. Thank you for your tree identification!!
