Day 15: Resupply In Big Bear Lake
From Arrastre Trail Camp mile 256.2 to Rt 18 mile 266.1, Big Bear
It was a comfortable cool night and for the first time I was really cold this morning. In no rush, I was still walking by 6:30 though I did not make breakfast. The ten mile walk was pretty easy, mostly downhill, but broke back into sunny scrub growth. Since I had not had breakfast I was extra motivated.
After arriving at the road it took me about three minutes to get a ride. I am staying at the Big Bear Hostel which is full of hikers. I did splurge on a private room.
Since it is Cinco de Mayo I ate at a Mexican restaurant and then came back to shower. I am wearing loaner clothes while all of mine are in the washer.
I plan to take tomorrow off and leave early Sunday. Forecast currently calls for it to get cold and drop 1 to 3 inches of snow Sunday and then be cold after that. Better than the desert heat!
