Weekend Eminent

It is hard to believe that we are already into the weekend!

A few people wanted to know about the Log Cabin in the Sky.

There isn’t a lot of information available about it–other than it is a large cabin on the top of a granite knoll.

Built of large logs, the site also has evidence that it was once a mining activity. The hike is short but tough.

Bill Mann’s Guide to Big Bear helps a bit and gives the following GPS coordinates:

  • Parking N34 degrees 18.64 W 116 degrees 53.89
  • Cabin N 34 degrees 18.81 W 166 degrees 53.78

Look for the transformers on the tree and head straight up from there it is about 3/4 of a mile.

You’ll need to access the area via 3N43.

Need more information? Check with the Big Bear Historical Society.

There are a few events taking place across the valley including the Art on the Lake, the Native American Arts Festival, and the Big Bear Ren Faire (here in Fawnskin).

Locally there will be a Stand Up Paddleboard clinic and demo down at Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina on Saturday, August 21, 2010 starting at 9am.

Hobie instructor Mark Carlisle will have several models of Hobie SUPs to demo and the clinic will cover a progression of basic and advanced paddling strokes and safety issues.

The demonstration is free but there is a group clinic available for $25 and private sessions are also available upon request.

For more information call Jim or Janet at (909) 866-3414.

    Actually, watch for 3 transformers on a telephone pole. That is where you park. The cabin is kinda straight from the transformers. It is hard to keep you bearings as you climb tho.
