Have you been to Bluff Lake near Big Bear and wondered about its unique history? [Click Here]

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.

Not actually officially in service, most of these are pre-operational shots, but it's just about there! [Click Here]

I wonder if IDK meant "flat" earth, or really meant "fiat" earth? I'm pretty sure there's a Flat Earth conference (count me out), but a Fiat Earth has deep religious, creationist meaning (count me in).

Thanks, IDK! Something I didn't know.

Here's my favorite little known 'thing' of nature: a "Looming".

I actually saw one, summer time on Santa Monica Beach.

Amazing where our minds go...

Like poking the bear.

Read that in the Farmers Almanac. Thought you all would appreciate.

BC! You can trust me to always be true and wholesome.

Well, it’s that time again. Off to the fiat earth conference in Denver.

Sounds interesting

IDK, I'm afraid to look.
