On the route between Los Angeles and Lake Arrowhead, along the CA-18 Highway, you’ll have several chances to soak up the sweeping vistas of San Bernardino National Forest. As I watched the fiery sun fall below the horizon, “blue hour” lasted no more than five minutes, casting a moody blue light over the mountains. It was an appropriate end to a very relaxing weekend unplugged in the mountains of Lake Arrowhead.

Should you find yourself in need of a weekend getaway, I highly recommend this spacious and comfortable rental in Lake Arrowhead.

    Although I haven’t been to Lake Arrowhead for 25 years, I used to go a lot as a teenager. In all the many times I’ve visited, I’ve never seen a view as beautiful as the shot you took here. Beautiful. Thanks for showing this photo. Makes me want to go there and reminds me of one of the most unforgettable times of my life.

      I didn’t know you used to go to Arrowhead. There’s a lot to be said for unplugging for a weekend—once you realize you have no cell reception and there is nothing you can do about it. Ha!
