Ron & Cheryl Downing stayed with us during the Amgen Tour of California for Stage Six, "The Big Bear Climb" and took this great photo of the riders racing by the Inn. It was very exciting for all of us in Big Bear to witness this event. The racers bicycled 135 miles that day....from Palmdale to Big Bear. We were all outside cheering them on with our cow bells-great fun!
Amber & Shane Gunsalus also stayed with us that weekend, and Amber took the beautiful photos of the plum blossoms, and of the SNOW! We woke up Sunday to a snowstorm-what a surprise. Before the day was over, we had five inches of snow. It was all melted the next day, so I guess it really is Spring!
