Scenes from the Weekend

Mountain getaway to Big Bear Lake!

Our sweet little cabin in the mountains
The cute and cozy inside
A fun hike along the Castle Rock trail
Which led to these amazing views of Big Bear Lake
You don't even want to know the rocks I had to climb to get this view!
Finally!  Somewhere in California with pretty Fall leaves on the trees =)
The "Village" looking all pretty (minus the construction cones...)
Relaxing by the wood burning fire in our little cabin
And now I really want a fireplace of our own...
I couldn't get enough of it!
Sunday morning spent reading by the lake while Brett mountain biked
Such a perfect view to end a great weekend getaway

And then we said goodbye to Big Bear Lake and drove down the mountain.  But we didn't venture home without a stop first at Hangar 24 Brewery and a local pizza spot to fill ourselves with goodness.  It was so nice to be able to experience a little bit of "Fall" action this weekend.  We welcomed the chilly air and changing colors of the leaves with open arms!  It made us really miss being back home on the East Coast, but at least we got a teeny tiny taste of Fall while up in Big Bear.  Better than nothing!

(And then we got back down from the mountains and it was 90 degrees.... waahhh!)
Oh well, on with the week!
(Here's to hoping for slightly cooler temperatures... a girl can dream, right?)


  1. This will be the 4th year my parents have lived in Southern California and I'm only NOW getting the hang of packing super {duper, duper!} light for my travels back for Thanksgiving. When I go back for Christmas, then it's have cooled off a bit but not for Thanksgiving! Beautiful photos, friend!

    1. I know, isn't it crazy! I'm just so not used to this warm weather at the end of October!

  2. What gorgeous views and a fabulous, quaint cabin! D and I love cabin getaways like that!

  3. What a great looking get-away! If the rocks you guys were upon are the ones up the mtn from town, then I've been there, too. What a beautiful time of year :) PS, nice glasses Brett - they look good

    1. Alan! Yes, they are those rocks! We love Big Bear. Hope all is well with you!!

  4. You guys always go on the best get-aways! How fun. The views of the lake are gorgeous.

    Also, how is it 90 degrees there? That's literally twice as warm as it is in Seattle right now. Yikes!

    1. Yes, I can't believe how hot it was! Thankfully, it has since cooled down a bit :)


I love comments & you! <3
