Big Bear!

So we have made it over 250 miles!! Pretty amazing when I think about it.....kind of crazy we have walked that far. It has been great thus far. I am loving it. Though we are about to go into the really hot desert section so...But here are some photos from this last bit

Our very dirty clothes. We had to fill the tub like 4 times to get the water to not get to that dark brown color. Amazing how dirty things get in the desert

Photobucket
And I did not realize we had to watch out for....

Photobucket
Killer Trees!!!

We woke up one morning in the clouds. So we packed up and started walking and we got to this boulder field that was amazing! The clouds were rolling in and then they would start to retreat and then come in again....we sat and ate breakfast there. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip thus far as it was gorgeous!

Photobucket
It was amazing. The ground was just like one big rock with boulders on it. Absolutely gorgeous!

Photobucket
I also didn't realize I had to watch out for cheerleaders.....

Photobucket
And squirrels.....there are so many dangers out there I never thought about before we left :)

Photobucket
Outside of Idyllwild we ran into our first snow...but Raymond took care of that :)

Photobucket
It is a hard hard life we have out on the trail....

Photobucket
Raymond's backpack is a magnet for small birds...when we stop to take a break they flock

Photobucket
More snow in the San Jacinto Wilderness

The first night out of Idyllwild we camped on Fuller Ridge above the clouds. It was gorgeous!

Photobucket
Above the clouds. It was awesome

Photobucket
We are sooo dirty. And walking through Mesa wind farm

Photobucket
Whitewater canyon was gorgeous as well. Lots of water flowing with tadpoles in it.

Photobucket
Cooling off in Mission Creek (our hottest day we have had thus far. The water was sooo cold and felt sooo good)

Photobucket
There are a lot of burned areas with cool burned trees

Photobucket
Mission Creek Canyon was super hot....but had a ton of beautiful flowers. The walls of the canyon were covered with purple flowers. It was awesome

Photobucket
We got to Big Bear this morning and had a HUGE breakfast. It was so good.

We are in Big Bear now and it seems like we should be able to upload our audio tonight so it should be up shortly! And we are heading out tomorrow afternoon. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
