Ten on Tuesday

10 Places I Would Take A Tourist to See in my Hometown...
well I live in a small town but it is also a big tourist attraction...here we call them 'Flatlanders' you can often find them playing on the side of 18 in dirty snow, packing snow on top of their cars to be 'cool' and doing about 25mph on 18 and never using turnouts.... here is my home town, Lake Arrowhead
Lake Arrowhead
where 'Flatlanders' often like to go are lame places which aren't so much fun and everything is way overpriced! so I would take a flatlander here:
1. The Flats - we go off roading there often and it is beautiful I like to picnic there
2. Deep Creek - so much fun most who visit the mountain don't got there because they don't know it exists, and you need a 4 wheel drive to get there.
3. Crab Flats - great hiking
4. My house around midnight - we throw awesome parties and they will more than likely see a bear and coyotes about 10 feet away
5. Lake Silverwood - because they don't have as many stupid rules as Lake Arrowhead, and lake patrol down there is way less uptight!
6. The Pinnacles - super fun trails that lead from Dart Canyon to Silevrwood, my husband and I used to take them all the time in high school
7. Papaya Bay or the Chefs Inn - its way fun on Friday and Saturday nights
8. Camp Seeley up to Heart Rock - its a fun hike I used to do it about 3 times a week with my Dad when I was a kid.
9. My old house - we had the best water I have ever had we had a natural well in our backyard, people should be able to know what real water taste like.
10. Panorama Point - the prettiest view ever, especially on a clear day you can see Catalina Island, the tall buildings in L.A. and ships on the ocean, Lake Elsinore, Lake Paris and can get a clear accurate traffic report and know which freeways not to take if you have to go down the hill...I love it!

Lake Arrowhead & Big Bear are my fave retreat places to just "get outta town".
The lake is tranquil. I could fall asleep on a raft in the lake!

Wow. That photo is beautiful. You live in a really neat place. I have well water and it's great, especially because I don't have a water bill each month. In case you're wondering - I have a septic tank, too. So, I don't have a sewer bill either. It's nice living in the country, but it takes so long to drive anywhere. The kids are getting older and wanting to move into town.
