Just did 13 miles around the Big Bear area today. Great weather day again.
Saw a coyote. It has been a long time since I have saw one… Have heard them close by when backpacking in NH, but I can’t remember when I last saw one. He was walking g right on the trail when I came upon him. He ran off into the brush about 50 yards and the stopped, so I got a second glance at him.
Had excellent views of the Big Bear community as we walked up on the ridge over looking the lake and the town.
Qball lost his cell phone on the hike today. If any other hikers are reading this and finds it ( on the stretch out of Big Bear) drop a line in the guestbook.
Saw lots of hikers in this area and the hostel where we have staying in Big Bear has been packed. Capacity is 40 and there are two other places to stay in town as well.
Big Bear has been great for refueling. Lots of good food here. Mex, Indian, Chinese and a great bfast place as well. Great to chat with all the other hikers here as well. Many of which I hadn’t seen since I got when I was sick. Very much enjoyed our stay.
