Zero #1: Big Bear Lake

My first zero!

Big Bear Lake isn't all chimichanga and cake -- we've got errands to run, laundry to do, and people to see. So off we went.

Up first, I bought a new (inferior) hat, to replace the one I'd left behind. The selection was lacking, but hey, beggars can't be choosers, right? Then it was off to the wonderland: a real supermarket!


The actual start to the day: breakfast pie at Teddy Bear Restaurant

After wandering the Von's for a while, I eventually just panicked, grabbed what I hoped was five-ish days of random foods, and got out of there for $88 and change. I hope this works!

After everyone had their errands done, it was time to meet up at the brewery and celebrate! With real food! <3

Finally, it's bedtime. My knee was feeling a bit better and I was ready to hit the trail again -- all of this time in town was making me antsy. I saw more and more hikers showing up in town who I knew were behind me, so it definitely made me feel like I was falling behind.

Behind what exactly? I'm not sure, but something.


Big Bear Lake is pretty, at least!
