Big Bear to Mammoth

July 6th - July 13th

It's a birthday tradition in our family to celebrate my birthday in Big Bear at the cabin. We get to enjoy the 4th of July fireworks and all the birthday festivities wrapped up into one. I was happy we didn't miss out on this tradition this year. We spent a few day alone in Big Bear with our doggies and we were later joined by my parents. It was awesome. Below you can see a view of the moon from our deck.

We left Big Bear on Friday and headed out on our adventure. We had no idea where we were headed when we got in the car, but that's the fun part. We ended up in Wrightwood.

When we were hiking the PCT we road walked a section of HWY 2 and we talked then about how lovely it would be to drive HWY 2 one day. So that's what we decided to do. We decided to stay the night in Wrightwood then cruise the 2 the next day.

That night we enjoyed a celebratory drink at the Raccoon Saloon.

This interesting bug was crawling around town.

That morning we cruised HWY 2. All along the way poodle dog bush was in full bloom. Eeeekk glad we weren't hiking through it.

We decided to head up to Bishop for the night, but we were delayed by the fish fire.

The next day we made it up to Mammoth. Our first stop: Mammoth Brewing Company!

One of my favorite beers.

The next few days we spent fishing the Mammoth Lakes. We had success at Lake Mamie and Lake Mary.

We enjoyed happy hour at Roberto's a few times. Free nachos and quesadillas!

We enjoyed Mammoth a ton. Next stop...Tuolumne Meadows.
