"Arrowhead...A bit of green in a world of grey..." Lake Arrowhead by TrueBeliever

Lake Arrowhead Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 18 photos

It's a well-known fact among intelligent people that places filled with cultural or natural integrity are more inspiring and fulfilling than places founded upon commercial pursuits. To look upon forests throbbing with ancient and newly-born life, to watch the fading light dance across hushed waters and disappear into the darkness beyond, or watch the sunlight reflect off pink clouds at dawn and paint them a crimson red at dusk. Alternatively, to absorb your own personal meaning from a painter's masterwork, or consider the intricate, painstakingly formed architecture of the world's great structures, to dance awkwardly to music you've never considered before, to perceive the imprint of the past on the present and witness with astute comprehension both the pleasures, and the plights, of our vast, diverse human family...<BR>
Lake Arrowhead--and the rest of the San Bernardino mountains--to me, represents one of the last vestiges of nature in an area of the world where every field is being replaced by forcibly planted, manicured facsimiles of the natural world. But even Arrowhead hasn't escaped the onslaught of "tourist trap stores" and merciless world domination by fast food chains such as McDonald's...well, at least you can get a lakeside view with your Big Mac and side-order of fries...lol!

    Glad you enjoyed Santa's Village. I was a costumed character there in the mid 60's working for $1.35 per hour as either the Easter Bunny or Pumpkin Head. thanks.. Don Miller, Boise, Idaho
