Labor Day Trip

We mixed up our usual schedule for camping to take advantage of the long Labor Day weekend. We took Wendy and the girls with us for a trip across the local mountains. We started with an exploration of the Forest Falls neighborhood, then up to Heart Bar for a picnic on the South Fork of the Santa Ana River. We went over Onyx Pass and down to Big Bear Lake where we camped the first night at Serrano. The morning started with a hike to the Discovery Center and then on the road to Keller Peak Fire Lookout. After a view from the tower we were on our way to lunch in Blue Jay. The ladies went shopping in Arrowhead Village while I got us registered at Dogwood for the night. After another fun campfire it was bedtime for our second night in the forest. Monday morning was slow and easy and then Lake Gregory for lunch before heading down the mountain. What a great weekend.
