Located just 90 miles east of Los Angeles in the rugged San Bernardino National Forest, Big Bear Lake provides the perfect weekend refuge for folks fleeing the crowded, smelly streets and smoggy skies of the city for a quick winter weekend of alpine skiing. In the summer months, it offers a respite of boating and swimming in one of California’s most pristine alpine lakes. This week, however, the quiet resort with the picturesque lake and rugged snow-capped peaks may be providing the perfect hideout for a disgruntled ex-police officer authorities believe is holed up somewhere in its rugged backcountry after allegedly killing three people.
An Associated Press piece on Big Bear Lake, the resort area where manifesto-writing former LAPD police officer Christopher Dorner is reported to possibly be hiding out this weekend. It’s kind of a weird piece — written halfway between flowery travel piece and update on a man currently on a murderous rampage — and the headline reflects this: Big Bear Lake offers both a pleasant weekend getaway and a good place to hide.”  Great headline, weird piece.
