There seems to be a by-law in Big Bear that there must be one carved wooden bear for at least every other house. (This guy was one of my favorites.)
The place we stayed was no exception, with this waving bear on the back deck. The hubs got a high-five, while I got a punch in the face. Nice.
We hiked every day, and the weather was pretty perfect.
Rita was a total trooper! She charged up the hills and along the trails!
We were rewarded with a beautiful view the day we hiked up to where the trail met up with the Pacific Crest Trail (which runs all the way from the border of Mexico to the border of Canada).
There were lots of pretty wild flowers!
We gave some hitch-hikers a ride. (There were THOUSANDS of lady bugs cruising around. I've never seen anything like it!)
Pretty sure Rita's fave thing about the trip was all the "dunking". Every day after our hike, she'd go for a dunk in the lake, or play a bit of fetch. (She doesn't like to swim, but LOVES to dunk.)
Lest you think we were on-the-go all the time... there was also a bit of this:
We also did a lot of reading and relaxing, and we enjoyed some beautiful sunsets!
All in all, our familial unit had a lovely time on our getaway.
By the end of it all, Rita was exhausted!

Do you have a vacation planned with your pet any time soon?
(How about without the pet?)
