A little sad as the YMCA was there for over 50 years and not even mentioned in the story except for a photograph from 1800s They built the camp and developed the lake. If it was not for their passion for the property it woul not be there today.

We love going to Bluff Lake and the Lodgepole Pine.... particularly when we have young children visiting. You can go out on an adventure that is very interesting for all ages and the children can handle it due to the short hike involved. We've parked at the place that has you going to the Lodgepole Pine first, then the lake.... and recently we parked at the opposite end of the lake than we usually see, and walked around the whole lake. You can see the very old cabins.... the public wasn't allowed to do the whole lake walk until a couple of years ago. We like to go in late spring/early summer the most so the lake is fairly full and the meadow by the Lodgepole is green. Fun to see tadpoles and polywogs in June last year... And we go in the morning.... there by 9 or 10 AM. Fun!

You're right it is green and gorgeous.

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER FOR TRAVELERS... DON'T ALWAYS TRUST YOUR MAPPING APPS & STAY ON DESIGNATED HIGHWAYS. RESCUE PERSONNEL HAS HAD TO PULL SEVERAL PEOPLE OUT OF FOREST SERVICE ROADS GETTING STUCK OR IN ACCIDENTS. GOOGLE MAPS HAS BEEN RE-ROUTING VISITORS FROM GREEN VALLEY LAKE TO FAWNSKIN VIA CRAB FLATS ROAD-3N16/2N12. THESE ROADS CAN BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT AND DANGEROUS IN THE SUMMER DURING NORMAL CONDITIONS!!!

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO A WINTER STORM WARNING NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH EARLY MONDAY MORNING. Expecting scattered snow showers tonight through Sunday morning with snowfall increasing in coverage and intensity Sunday afternoon & night. Snowfall amounts of 4-8" are likely above 4,000 feet with around a foot or more "possible" above 5,000 feet. We will also experience frigid temperatures with chill values below zero Sunday night. Travel is not recommended during this time. If you do have to travel, plan ahead, carry extra food, water & warm clothing in the event you become stranded and carry your chains. Check regular updates @bensweather [Click Here]

Thanks for the heads up NannyBear... Maybe a little snow tonight before the bigger snow storm tomorrow afternoon/evening. NWS has gone as far as issuing a Winter Storm Warning for tomorrow. Never seems to end around here this year

The 3.5 'bed tax' must be a local thing in Big Bear. Nobody's sent us a bill. The only tax we pay is the Lodging Tax to SB County.

You know they are heavy. I’ve been carrying them around for weeks now. People ask me, “What’s that?” I say Ben told me to carry chains. Can I just keep ‘em in the trunk of my chicken?

But we could see a few snow showers or flurries this evening. Roads getting icy once again as temps drop so drive safe and ALWAYS carry chains. Can't say that enough but people still don't seem to get it.
