|Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) & Cougar Crest Trail|
Cougar Crest Trail - Big Bear, CA
September 5, 2015
|It was our first visit to Big Bear|
|Cougar Crest Trailhead|
Such a nice trail. I don't recall the exact stats but maybe it was a couple miles to the top, perhaps 1000 feet of elevation gain - maybe more like 800 .. I just don't remember. But the trail was great and is a must do if you make it out to Big Bear!

|Cougar ends at the PCT. (This is where the adventure should begin...)|
Instead, it was a one-day family getaway. So, let's rent a boat...
|Ayden got caught on the golf cart - Ha!|
|Lake levels were very low|
In my opinion, I don't think they should allow motor boats in this lake. Perhaps canoes and kayaks -- but, I rented one... a speed boat that is...
|Look out for the Pirate Ship!|
This was a long day trip for us. We drove back that night. We went past Lake Arrowhead which was a smaller version of Big Bear. It was a party town... The drive back was awesome! I think the road was called Mountain Rim something or other. Great views .. very cool...

I MESSED UP! Three weeks in a row now and my body just wants to stay heavy. I'm eating too much and not exercising enough. I just get lazy! Back at work full time and pretty depressed about that actually.
I'm going to have to turn this around - very soon! The whole goal was to keep it easy week to week but now I see that I need to go into bezerko mode.
It's not so much the hunger as it is the dizzy emptiness and Need for Girl Scout Cookies! This must be diabetes. I'm fighting something chemical here and I need to get a handle on it. I must force my body to accept healthy foods. I'm all junked out!
