Pictures of Lake Arrowhead, California

Pictures of Lake Arrowhead, California are breath-taking and bring a person back to nature. These photographs will give the person who has never been to the area an idea of what it looks like. Also, on a trip to the San Bernardino Mountains you can photograph the beautiful scenery, and then you can enjoy your snapshots for years to come. So how does a person get to Lake Arrowhead, California? To get here you will need to fly into one of the major Southern California airports, and then rent a car to drive to the San Bernardino Mountains. Lake Arrowhead is eighty miles east of LAX Airport and forty two miles east of the Ontario International Airport. I recommend using Google Maps to plan your driving route, but you can also use Google Maps to find public transportation from major Southern California airports to the San Bernardino Mountains. Plan to spend a day in Lake Arrowhead when you have time to walk around, see the sights, or at least take a few pictures here in the San Bernardino Mountains. I recommend staying for a few days so you can go on hikes, and see all the mountain has to offer.

Very nice photos, just some friendly advice, if you can adjust the exposure on your camera, set it to over expose by about a stop when you are taking pictures of mostly snowy scenes, that will help your snow come out white, rather than grey.
