Hiking in Big Bear

I must say, Big Bear has some great hiking.

From the trail

I seem to have trouble with the mountain air (NO, I'm not completely out of shape... Okay maybe a little) so we did an easy 1.2 mile path that was a big loop. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the temperature was perfect for me. Great hiking weather :)

As a child I was a monkey. I LOVED to climb everything- trees, rocks, ditches. I haven't fully gotten over my climbing obsession. The picture above is proof of that (you can't tell but this is a pretty big boulder my mom and I conquered).

You know those people who take 80 pictures a day? I'm one of them. Here's the view I get most of the hike- WAY in the back taking pictures haha.

The beginning of the trail with Richard :)

After the 1.2 mile hike I had a hankering for some more climbing. Richard and I climbed to the top of these boulders. The view was majestic yet scary.

Thanks for the camera help thus far folks- I'd love to hear any more advice you've got (maybe from Catherine or Raw vegan momma or other people who have recently purchased- BIG thanks to Crystal :))

PS I'm hoping to catch up on my blog reading tomororw. See you then!

Looks like a fun hike. I went snowboarding at Snow Summit once when we lived in AZ - nice area.

Looks like some awesome hiking. I'm a digital camera addict! In the past I've been married to Sony's.

I've branched out a bit. My current fav is the Panasonic Lumix. Normally, a computer geek would never recommend a Panasonic camera...but, this one is actually a Leica in disguise. The same Leica camera is about 4x the price.

My Block Island pictures were with the Lumix. It is a digital SLR, but it is pretty small.

Otherwise, Canon Powershots are a good pick!
