"Big Bear history & archaeology" Big Bear City by Avryle

Big Bear City Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 53 photos

I've been up to Big Bear more times than I can count- usually for a day of skiing or for a weekend at a friend's place. It's a short drive away to get away from the city and relax on the lake or on the shaded porch of a log cabin. This time was a bit different- camping for a month during archaeology field school. I have learned to appreciate the joys of running water and flush toilets.

Digging in the dirt...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Isolation, quiet & the stars at night
  • Cons:Bad phone reception & GPS signals way out in the woods
  • In a nutshell:Great time & a renewed appreciation for indoor plumbing.

    Grazie for BB photos/detail - nice to see something other than the ski trails! Hope you post more - a good friend is moving there. Ciao, Carol <(•¿•)>
