35th Annual Run Through the Pines ~ Lake Gregory

SAVE THE DATE… August 9, 2014 for the 35th Annual Run Through the Pines!  This run takes place at Lake Gregory in Crestline, CA.

I run this trail all the time and can personally say that I have ran in this race.  I can speak from experience that this run is fairly easy and lots of fun!  Remember that you will be running in high altitude, so be prepared to be a little winded if you are not used to the elevation!

The run features: 5K Run/Walk, Race-Walk, Kids Fun Run, 10K, music, water stations, chip timing and computerized race results, course patrolled by Emergency Communications and much more.

You can register @ https://register.chronotrack.com/reg/form?eventID=8359 or find more info on the Rim-Rec website: http://rim-rec.org/

Remember to run safe and have fun!

THE LAKE ARROWHEAD “QUEEN” AND WHO SHE IS…

If you have ever been to Lake Arrowhead then chances are you have seen the “Queen!”  Oh no, we don’t have a real Queen up here, I am talking about the big beautiful white boat on the lake called the queen.

She can be found on the lake sitting in front of the Belgian Waffle Works Restaurant or touring on the water.  While aboard the 1 hour tour, one of the captains provides a historical tour of Lake Arrowhead.  I have personally been on the queen multiple times and love taking family and friends for the ride.  I find that the guided tour is so informative and I still manage to learn something new every time.  You will hear about how the lake was formed, what Bugsy Siegel has to do with this town and maybe even see a couple homes to the stars.

Did you know that Priscilla Presley had a home up here and Howard Hues used to land his water plane in our lake?  Well, those are a couple examples of the stories that make this one hour tour so much fun!

My little hint… you can bring a bottle of your favorite wine or beer aboard, and if you forget the wine opener, don’t worry they have one! 😉
