Fawnskin Action Starts Tomorrow!

Moving into the 4th of July weekend is always busy. I posted some info but did not give you the whole scoop!

First, the Interlaken Center is just about done. You can finally get in and out without a lot of drama. Check out those big boulders while you are there! I’d hate to slide on ice and hit one during the winter.

A new yoga studio is opening up in Big Bear City. It will be right next door to EastSide Book Cafe where the travel agency used to be.

Moose Lodge Yard Sale

Moose Lodge 2085 annual yard sale starts tomorrow! It will run through Sunday. Usually locals bring donations throughout the weekend so drop on by, pick up a few items, and maybe clear out some. All funds collected go to Moose charities.

Moose Lodge BBQ

One of my favorite events is the annual Moose Lodge 4th of July BBQ and this year it will be hosted by my favorite Moose Men–Robert and Dennis. Only $8 for great BBQ with the fixins and it is one of the few times you can not be a member and partake of the merriment…of course you can join right up while you are there!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s unknown!

Yesterday I had the rare pleasure (sarcasm in case you miss it) to be down the heat in triple digit weather. While I was hidden away in a building, I missed sighting the fireball–reported as being near Butler Peak.

Want the scoop? Dave and his pals at RimOfTheWorld.Net scooped everyone on the fireball…check it out now.

Fawnskin Mountain Hike

I read that the Mountain Top Hiking Club is heading up to Grey’s Peak–but it is closed! Here is the announcement–call for clarity. Big Bear Sierra Club hosts the event with departure at 8am. Bring water, snacks, sun hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, layered clothing and good hiking boots. National Forest Adventure Pass is required for drivers.
