I’ve been dangling the Big Bear day trip apple in front of you guys for a while and finally got to wort out the images and write about it. Early last ween when it rained in LA, it also snowed up in the mountains. A very late first snow of the year, but snow nonetheless. I love snow, I know it is an oxymoron to those living on the east coast who probably is more than happy to trade places with me, but I love the fresh powdery first snowfall. So when I learned form the weather report that there is fresh powder, I wasted no time to make a day trip in Big Bear just to catch the first pow. From where I live in West LA, it takes roughly two hours to get up to Big Bear and Big Bear lake and going on a Wednesday isn’t too bad in terms of traffic. I have horror stories of 8 hour drive stuck on the mountain traffic where everyone had to put on snow chains and thank goodness this was not the case.
I’ve mentioned in my post before that I was going to load up heavily in full winter gear but it turns out that the weather was much warmer than I had expected so I changed into just a marled knit sweater and my olive trench coat. I still wore my Louboutin boots because they are so warm and great to trek in the snow. Along the way up the mountain, there were numerous beautiful scenic points, even the fog covered road is extremely beautiful. I had to stop multiple times to take pictures of the scenery along the way. When I finally got to Big Bear lake the serenity and view simply takes my breath away. Unlike Big Bear village, there weren’t many people at the lake besides the locals who lives there and a few people at the lake fishing. I pretty much had the lake all to myself.
I brought my new favorite shades on this day trip, it is from a young Korean eyewear brand called Accure. Accure eyewear derives inspirations from fine arts, literature, film and fashion and incorporates them into high tech eyewear that reflects Accure’s unique sense of style. Every season there are new inspirations and new styles and you can shop on their website. I am so thrilled to have found them and will be looking forward to many more sunglasses and optical glasses from them.
Thank you all for reading!
