More and more people from other regions are starting to join us. Get out and see the ancestors of some of your favorite cultivars. Oh yes, and take in spectacular scenery, too! Details to follow about lodging, transportation recommendations, etc. The closest town is Big Bear Lake, a ski resort in winter.

    Thankfully the current fires are not close to Rim of the World and at the other end of Southern California. 100 miles to 160 miles to the west. We will however see the aftermath of the June 2015 Lake Fire in the San Bernardino Mountains. It burned over 31,000 acres (over 49 square miles!). Most of the area burned will not be accessed on our road trip, but a couple areas near the highway did burn, which shows the stark contrast.
