10.19.15 – Big Pine Lakes

Here are some pictures from when I went camping up in Big Pine a couple months back. We stayed at Glacier Lodge and went hiking up to the Big Pine Lakes (First Lake and Second Lake).

The hike to the First Lake was about 4 miles (one way), and took us almost 4 hours because it was all uphill. Definitely one of the hardest hikes I’ve ever done, but you’ll see that the views were worth it.

Trying not to show that I was struggling. At one point, we sat down to take a break and I was so tired that I fell asleep for a good 5 minutes.

A couple weeks ago I went on a little vacay to Big Bear with my boyfriend’s family. Can’t believe that I had never been to Big Bear before, considering I live in southern CA, but I will definitely be back! It was so gorgeous that I was debating whether or not to come back home. Not to mention, the weather was perfect.
