Big Bear Blast!

Our trip to Big Bear was a blast! The jeep took us on trails up and around Big bear..and even way out into Yucca Valley! The sights were amazing..and we even spotted snow left here and there along the trail.
We passed thru some of the burn areas from last fall..and what an eerie feeling that was.. everything charred..and very quiet..almost like we were tip-toeing thru a graveyard.
The camper is now cleaned and put away..til next month when we head up to Yosemite again.. I can't wait as I've been waiting since last year to visit Yosemite in the Spring! Hopefully the waterfalls will be gushing and the bears will be awakening :)

Tip embracing his wildside

'ok..im done being 'wild'..please help me down!!"

a solemn silence


the wildflowers growing in the burn areas:

Joshua trees:

Tippy quietly reflects next to our stone statues:

huge boulders to explore and play on:

our course..we love fish and scallops.. :)

this time.. salmon.. bacon-wrapped scallops and asparagus:

and Steak Kabobs, red potato slices, green peppers and onions:

While the days grow longer...so do my gray hairs and wrinkles...lol..

so i created some digital art to reflect a positive affirmation i have to keep telling myself:

"im embracing..im embracing..im embracing"

Love it all Sammy!! what a weird feeling indeed to be somewhere that was scorched and was abundant with life and no longer. Tippy is a mountain lion at heart I think! and boy oh boy..I was about to blog my kabob pics and you beat me to it, I will raise you a shrimp and see your scallop.....
..ugh..the body change..ugh...
life must go on though

Your pictures are just gorgeous! It looks like so much fun. I'm not going to show the Tippy pictures to Nellie because she'll get really jealous. Shhh! Don't tell her we're getting her a kitty harness for ther birthday so she can be a true camping cat like Tippy.

I love your new banner and graphic creations. As always, your work is colorful, creative and inspiring.
